Zhong Dong Farm responsibly grows their own fresh produce without the use of harmful herbicides and pesticides and invites anyone who is interested to come and have a look for themselves! On a bright, sunny day Magnolia Kindergarten packed busses and took the kids to go have a fun and informative time.

The adventure started with a tour of the greenhouses to have a look at all the vegetables being grown. Children examined mushrooms, celery, tomatoes, radishes, carrots, cabbage, mint, and many other tasty foods. Later they got a chance to pull up some of the carrots, radishes and celery to take home. However, it was no easy task to get some of these vegetables out of the ground!

Our friendly tour guide then took everyone to a giant pond that contained over 3,000 fish! The bright orange Koi were the students’ favorite fish and the children all got a big bag of fish food to throw into the water. Teachers then explained to the kids how the water from the pond is used to help the vegetables grow. The next stops were the rabbit and goat pens, where kids took the leaves of the radishes and other greens to feed the eager animals their lunch.

After a challenging walk through the garden maze, Magnolia kids then had a lovely picnic of their own, where everyone enjoyed fresh fruits and produce from the farm.

Kids and teachers had a great time getting close to these beautiful animals and nature, all while learning about where our food comes from!
