    Fernbrook Our solar panels are up and fully functioning and we ve added some trees to the rain garden we are developing in the barnyard Both of these are things the children can monitor and study to learn about renewable alternative energy and conservation The solar energy company we engaged 4 Best Solar Fernbrook camp parent Rich Albano is one of the owners has donated a monitoring system worth 1 500 to enable the kids to learn first hand about solar energy Thank you Rich and company Several years ago I said my main goal was to have as many children as possible experience the Farm and learn about nature This spring we literally have more schools than we can accommodate that want to come to Fernbrook for a Field Trip We are committed to having students experience the farm in small groups of no more than 10 per staff person This limits our ability to serve very large groups but we feel it makes a much more meaningful experience for each child As our programs grow we hope to be able to expand our staff to handle more children It s exciting to have such a dilemma The most exciting event since our last newsletter is the arrival of Gemma Kuser daughter of Brian and Tracy born March 7 Mother and daughter are doing well Brian is getting very little sleep taking care of them and older sister Mikala age 2 ½ Despite all that he s working on plans for summer camp hiring staff and creating new programs Camp starts in just three months I hope each of you and your families are well Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of Japan who are suffering more than we can imagine Our life and this farm

    of the NJ Farm to School network info njfarmtoschool org Our goals are to foster good nutrition and knowledge about food in schools through curriculum development school gardens linking farmers and schools and advocacy The following is some information of interest Since the 2002 Farm Bill introduced the issue of irradiated beef to Federal School lunch programs further agreements have been made to allow irradiation of ground beef in school lunches In addition there seems to be limited choices to serve poultry products in schools that are free of preservatives additives and other not so healthy add ons We feel it is important to demand of our school officials boards superintendents principals teachers that they work closely with food service directors to provide healthy food in our school cafeterias Food service providers feed millions of children each day and their buying power is enormous We need new ideas and new distribution models Our children and our future depend on it Posted in Partnerships Uncategorized Recent Posts Ms Jenna s Top 5 Young Stewards Summer 2014 Adventures 2014 Fall Pre K Kindergarten Homeschool Semester Letter From Farmer Q Categories About the Farm 28 Camps 29 Fall Break Camp 2 Family Programs 3 Fiddlehead Summer Camp 14 Friends of Fernbrook 3 Homeschool 10 How You Can Help 7 Lower Level Homeschool 4 Newsletter 44 Partnerships 8 Pre K Kindergarten Programs 1 Press Releases 5 Programs 18 Scholarships 1 School Field Trips 4 Scout Group Programs 1 Spring Break Camp 3 Uncategorized 37 Unit of Study 5 Upper Level Homeschool 4 Urban Initiatives 7 Winter Break Camp 2 Young Stewards Summer Enrichment Program 16 Archives November 2014 5 October 2014 1 September 2014 1 August 2014 4 July 2014 3 April 2014 2 March 2014 8 January 2014 7 October 2013 5 September
