I know that Ohlone School has a wonderful farm although I have never seen it myself. It has occurred to me that of all the years I have had children in Palo Verde, I have never heard of any class going on a field trip to Ohlone's farm. I wonder if this is something that is common to all the other elementary schools. I think that such a wonderful community resource is worth a field trip to. I have driven to many field trips, many quite some distance away, and I think this must be a great idea for the lower grades on a half day field trip. So, are field trips happening to Ohlone farm and if not, why not? There may of course be a good reason for this and if there is I am interested in finding out.
