139 Days Free: Moving Forward Education

Written by

Hey y’all, let’s check in!

Our education team soared to higher heights last week. No for real, we opened the Planting Justice 5 acre farm to the students of moving forward education and their staff. We planted 8 tree. We also learned about the art of grafting, which is the ability to take one fruit tree and fuse it to another fruit tree where it will bear fruit year-round. We also learned about ticking the roots of  a plant before putting it in the soil, and last but not least, we learned about soil amending. 

This has been the check in for my 139th day of freedom – how productive is that?!
