On April 6th, after much discussion and consideration, 1222 Hallen was chosen by the school board for our new site starting Fall 2012. Next steps are to continue with inspections and permitting with the City of Arcata. All is expected to go well. The length of escrow is not yet known.
Parents and staff are already brainstorming about garden plans. Urban gardening is not our idea of a farm school, however, with our current age group there is remarkable potential for both conventional and non-conventional gardens that will help us grow into our farm school vision. In the meantime (2-3 years), we have a spacious building where our classroom and our Montessori program will bloom with the same kind of excellence as our first two years.
