David Cawley Middle School students returned to Hip Peas Farm in Hooksett for hands on instruction in farming. To thank the staff and farmers, they planned and prepared a breakfast, made gifts, and created this video for them.

Hooksett 7th Grade Foods and Nutrition Students Collaborate with Hip Peas Farm

June 22, 2018

Foods and Nutrition students gathered their trowels and rakes and headed to the new Hip Peas Farm in Hooksett, NH in May. Students were welcomed by farmers and staff, toured the land, and learned the tricks and tips to plant a variety of herbs, fruits and vegetables. We’re so grateful to the farm staff and the New England’s Tap House Grille staff and owners for including our students in their newest endeavor. We can’t wait to return to the Farm to harvest!

This video was created by two of our talented students. Watch to see how excited the classes were to be involved in this amazing opportunity!
