Farm Design- green mountain girls

hola! Lylee in class here- I'm in a farm design class right now, which is pretty much just what it sounds like. We are visiting farms around Vermont, and spending the rest of the time in the studio working on our own farm design projects. So far we have been to a whole bunch of amazing farms. Monday we visited Green Mountain Girls' farm in central Vermont. They are wonderful folk and offer a year round CSA share complete with meat, goat milk, veggies and canned goods. We spent a few hours visiting all the animals and even got to help raise a green house. They had toiled for about 300 hours getting a second hoop house planned and built, and we got to help with the final, heroic feat of shimmying the plastic up on to the hoop house.
so awesome!
