Carolyn Collicutt’s message to the third Hinchinbrook Farm Society annual general membership meeting. February 23, 2014.
Bridgewater High School partnered up for a Co–op Student to come for experiential learning.
There were a total of 3 co-op students from BHS this year, each of them earning a full credit through working at the farm.
The bi-monthly system to train volunteers began in January and there were a total of 6 orientations and trainings lasting a full day throughout the year.
On a sad note Silver Bell had her first bout of Laminitis in 26 years. It later proved to be Cushing’s which is successfully treated daily, but it was summer before it was diagnosed.
Every day that we wake up and live in the hours of that day, there is a possibility of being thrown up against a situation where we may have to risk everything, even our lives. This is the way the real world is. We must work to develop every human resource within us in order to prepare for these days. To deny any person their fair share of risk experiences is to further cripple them for healthy living.
