On Monday, October 16, both 1st grade classes went on a field trip in Julian to visit the orchard Calico Ranch. Thanks to the owners David and Amparo Young (also parents at SDFAS), the children learned about apple culture and work. They picked up apples from trees, made apple juice and had the pleasure to taste delicious organic apples and pears. The ranch has no less than 120 different varieties of apples. The children were surprised and impressed to discover some apple trees are almost 70 years old! An ideal field trip integrated in a long term project for the first graders this year around trees and forest.
