This summer The Center for Discovery developed three new classrooms known as FIT classrooms or “Farmers in Training.”  These classrooms were developed to promote our farming curriculum and prepare students for real life work on the farm.

Over the course of the 6 week summer program these 3 classrooms harvested 5,500 bulbs or garlic and 7,400 carrots, set up 74 rolls of sheep fencing, processed 15,996 eggs, bottled 132 jars (264 lbs.) of honey and much, much more.

Teachers and residential staff saw great benefits from this work, including better sleep. Students also showed fewer behaviors, greater independence and responsibility and excelled in team work.
