Sister Margo Morris, Executive Director and Founder of Sprout Creek Farm, discusses how this working farm helps foster a better understanding of our place in the natural world, thus encouraging responsibility for the future of our environment. Sr. Margo Morris emphasizes her preference to educate young people about “from soil to table” at the beginning of learning, not in the middle. Education is implemented at the farm with projects, such as involving students in the farm’s successful cheese production. Students come from all over the Hudson Valley to attend summer camp and visits throughout the year. Aluimni of the program can enter careers in veterinary, environmental law, and other related professions.
