MSU student organic farmers visit

16Jun10

Yesterday we had the great fortune of hosting a bunch of folks that are in Michigan State Student Organic Farm’s Organic Farmer Training Program.  We also had the apprentices from the Greening of Detroit come over and join us for lunch.  First we went on a tour of the gardens at Earthworks, and then came back and had lunch and talked.  Lunch included collard and black-eyed pea soup with collards out of the garden and salad made with Grow In Detroit salad greens.  During lunch we learned about each others programs and how they functioned, and then each person shared what their goals coming out of the experience of apprenticing would be. Folks found a chance to network and learn about new ideas and even figure out ways to collaborate.  I think for the most part everyone had a really nice time – and of course it wouldn’t be complete with out a group photo.
