Welcome to an urban farm! I'm going to show you around a fabulous Tucson farm project where the sign at the entry tells what the student farmers learn: "To Take Care of Plants, To Cook, To Milk Gertie, To Pollinate, About Worms, To Respect the Earth, To Eat Healthy, Composting, Soil Science, To Calculate and Predict, To Harvest, To Measure and Weigh." And that BIG rooster? He is used as a bench.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
