and geese, and acres of gardens filled with heirloom varietals of
tomatoes, onions, garlic, pumpkins, and a dizzying array of other
fruits and vegetables. Students spend each day in small work groups

palate — excited

activities, but there are some opportunities to
your surroundings and
make your own discoveries.
