Field Trip

Two Saturdays ago (6/26)was our big trip to Truly Living Well, a certified organic, urban farm located in East Point, GA, with a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. It was a great opportunity for everyone to learn more about alternative farming practices and marketing techniques.

Mr. Rashid Nuri the owner of Truly Living Well Natural Urban Farms gave us a tour of one of his farms.

Our first group trip together with everyone who works at OCF.

The children came along and shared in the experience as well!

The women and men were interested, engaged, and asked many questions while the kids explored the farm on their own.

The women were especially keen on learning about Mr. Rashid's cinder-block worm farm.

The brave and curious examining Mr. Rashid's bee hives.

We ended the day with the women singing a song to show their appreciation to Mr. Rashid for hosting them.
