Last Day at the Farm

The school year has drawn to an end, and so Rose and Joman are finished for now at the Farm program. Here are a few pictures of their last day.

The marionettes were dyed, sewn, stuffed, shaped, covered and felted. A whole lot of work went into these little masterpieces.

The show also had special effects. Hard to capture on camera though. :-)
06090113oven
Some of the children made bread in the clay bread-oven this year. It is hard to tell from the picture, but the oven has a dragon wrapped around it. The smoke comes from the dragon's mouth at the top of the oven.
06090107mosaic
A new skill for the children this year -- mosaics, representing flowers and herbs found on the farm. Just waiting for grout.
06090106wetlands
Wetland tours.
06090105teepee
A tepee which was constructed by the younger children. The lashings were made from bark they stripped from the poles.
06090104calendula
Calendula ointment made from home-grown honey and calendula flowers.
06090102jomanbook
A book produced by all the children, telling the story of how they made the calendula ointment.

I wish I could go to a program like this every week. :-)
