Apple Seeds hosts Picnic on the Farm

News

Families in Washington County gathered on Saturday for Apple Seeds’ 5th Annual Picnic on the Farm.

Surrounded by local music and food, attendees could do yoga, play one-of-a-kind farm games, and cook food in the Apple Seeds kitchen. 

The event raised money for the non-profit’s educational programs, including farm-to-table cooking classes, cooking in the schools, and school garden workshops. 

“For a lot of students that we work with, they don’t have a chance to see where food comes from, so it’s a real awakening for a lot of them about how they can eat differently,” said Kyra Ramsey, co-director of Apple Seeds. 

Ramsey added that the farm has a production garden, which is about half an acre of produce grown and harvested by the children.
