This past weekend our daughter Erin invited 31 students and 5 leaders from Seneca High School in Tabernacle, NJ to our farm for a 3 1/2 day retreat. These young people are the cream of the crop,the DaVinci's with a brush, the Michael Angelo's with a hammer and nail.
Team building, befriending fellow students, encouraging each other, developing talent are only a few challenges undertaken.
Painting the Turkey Tractor and Egg Mobile was a site to see.
What got more paint, the building or the painter?
The happy milk cow, pink pig, baby chick, a Mama Turkey and her chicks all put a smile on our Turkey Tractor which will grace the farm for years to come as a reminder of the wonderful weekend with so many beautiful young people from Seneca High School of Tabernacle, NJ.
Learning to build trust among your peers is an awsome challenge for teenagers but we saw an incrediable group or young people push it to the limit. Falling off of hay bales into the waiting arms of several trusting souls is not an easy task.
Many of the students & their leaders tried their hand @ milking Big Mama and drinking her warm milk.
Drug Squad is the name of the group these young people belong to. Their purpose is to encourage fellow students to make the right choice's in life which will affect the rest their life.
