Growing Healthy:

In collaboration with Hawthorn Hollow and Racine Unified School District (RUSD), we have hosted half of the district's first graders for a 2-hour fall field trip since 2017. First graders tour the farm, interact with animals, taste fruits and veggies grown here at EJC, explore compost, and walk the labyrinth, all while learning about the digestive system, which connects to the district's health curriculum unit on Food & Nutrition. Over 20 volunteers help to make these field trips possible each year.
