The entire 9th grade class enjoyed their first overnight camping trip to Grassy Knolls near The Bowl on Midland's property. They hiked together after dinner on Saturday September 21 and returned to campus in time for Sunday morning breakfast. It was a chance to bond as a class while getting out on Midland's property and developing skills discussed in Midland 102 like packing, hiking, and sleeping under the stars without leaving a trace.

9th graders in Midland 102 left the four walls of the classroom (or three, in the case of Lumber Yard) to work in the open air classroom of the farm.  The students harvested string beans for Thursday night's dinner and tomatillos for Chef Gloria's salsa.  They tasted various tomatoes, watermelon, and peppers.  Next week, they'll begin working on detailed maps of the farm and its Fall crops.  Outdoor Leadership students try stand up paddle boarding at Refugio State Beach and tend trails on Midland's property.  Last week they put the finishing touches on our Front Range Trail.
