In the Spring of 2017, MEC spruced up the school garden with the children. They planted corn, which they grew from seed, harvested, dried, shucked and sold as Popping Corn at our fall Manton Apple Festival. The children worked from seed to sale, this is one example of how we see our working farm. This Spring of 2019, we will be taking cuttings from heirloom apple orchards in our town. We will learn how to propagate apple trees, and will sell these at the 2019 Manton Apple Festival.
