Ellen is working on the farming section of the mural. Stunning amber waves of grain!
Three of AMP's apprentices visited the Haddad dairy farm to interview Nina, who is the farmer milking the cows in the mural, and Scott, both of whom run the farm. Quite an experience for these three to learn about what it takes to manage this operation--and why they do it.
Jess, Natalie, and Liam--three of AMP's apprentices--with Michelle and Morrow, who are two of our mentors leading this extraordinary group.
Lots of action at the mill yesterday. Canton Village Excavation and Construction worked tirelessly before the rain came in, three different machines filling in, with the soil inspectors taking readings in between fill loads.
Construction continues. The stabilizing wall for the mural building on the left. The future visitor center on the right.
Our volunteers hard at work, putting together our upcoming membership mailing.
This week has been all about digging for drainage pipes between the two mill buildings. To realize how deep they are, the new drain stack is at ground level, so the crew (who look tiny!) will have to fill back to the top of that drain.
