Fruit science November schedule

The class touches on the principles of organic fruit gardening, including soil enrichment, pest control, and harvesting. The nutritional value of the different fruits is covered. Students have the opportunity to select the fruits they want to harvest. During the class, students learn how to preserve through canning, freezing, drying, and pickling. The students are given the recipes and a lesson plan the student can take home for optional further study. I teach the importance of taking care of our environment, respecting our resources God has blessed us with, and how the lesson applies to the student's life. Classes are designed and taught for age appropriateness and level of skill. Parents who have other children with them, may stay and use Knollwood facilities, including a study room, public bathroom, several places to picnic on the property, or Bedford town is only 5 miles away.
