The farm �?¢ï¿½?ï¿½?Henry Got Crops!�?¢ï¿½?ï¿½? is run by Weavers Way staff working closely with students and teachers from Saul High School of Agriculture to design a farm that not only brings food to the community, but also serves as an educational opportunity for students at Saul. The farm is located right on campus, and teachers and their classes are invited to learn about and partake in small scale, organic vegetable growing. This is one of the first high school-based CSAs in the country. There are many different opportunities for student involvement, ranging from hands-on work in the fields, to helping with community outreach, to doing applied research, budgeting, planning, and newsletter writing.
