Seventh Graders Visit Patroon Land Farm

Lisha Kill Middle School seventh grade teachers and students traveled to Patroon Land Farm in June to get a hands-on lesson about agriculture and farming.

Patroon Land Farm, located in the Town of Knox, is operated by the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. Its mission is to provide a variety of fresh produce to the many agencies served by the Regional Food Bank and to offer students and volunteers the opportunity to learn about agriculture and to participate in farming activities.

The Lisha Kill group assisted in planting tomato plants, more than 10,000 of them. Special thanks to Ms. LaFex, 7/8 ELA Teacher for presenting this opportunity to the group and to Mr. Backus for arranging for the group to travel at no cost.

Visiting Patroon Land Farm provided Lisha Kill seventh graders with a valuable community service activity and hopefully “planted the seeds” for their involvement in future iCARE initiatives.
