Treleven in April

End of Lambing Season Breakfast

April Happenings on the Farm.

Lambing Season a great success! We finished the 2011 lambing season admirably with the help of 30 students and local friends who took turns spending a night in the barn office to help birth the lambs! Many thanks to Xiauxue Weng who organized the volunteers (with coaching from Yuki Yoshida). Don Mitchell did an introductory workshop for interested parties, everyone arrived on time and  took care of the bottle babies during their tenure! Some groups just waited and watched and others were busy all night. There will be a lamb frolic celebration for all on May 7 from 3:00 – 5:00.

The Treleven Board Meeting took place April 23 and we are beginning to hone our ideas about the direction of the organization. Please take a look at the minutes, which are  posted on the Transparency Page.  We are especially looking forward to hosting the class for teachers interested in learning more about the experience of migrant workers on Vermont Farms.

Friends from Singapore, Malaysia, and Portland hold the babies they helped to deliver.
