DEC Campers visit Karen Kerney's orchard and garden
The seven campers were accompanied by four POC members. After touring Karen's place, we learned about soil and the plants Karen was growing. We tried our hand at a few gardening tasks and Karen coached us on how to hoe properly. And at the end of our morning, Karen served us a treat right from the vineyard, homemade grape juice. It was a wonderful local outing exposing us all to the benefits of raising your own food.
