Gatto Family Farm Field TripMs. Liston's class was able to take a trip to Gatto Family Farm in Crete.  The Gatto's provided the students with a tour of the farm and discussed what plants need in order to grow, as well as how the organic farm is maintained.  Inside the greenhouse, the students were able to witness how the plants are started in a paper pot before they are put into the garden once warmer weather arrives.  Each student planted their own strawberry plant to take home and grow themselves.  Finally, the trip ended with time spent with the Gatto's chickens.  The students were able to see that eggs come in a variety of colors and even got to hold/pet the chickens.  A huge thank you to Andy, Janet, and Joel Gatto for sharing their wonderful farm and knowledge with our middle schoolers.
