From The Executive Director
Happy New Year, may it bring happiness and good fortune to all of you! TUF is heading into the New Year with great expectations for moving the programs and infrastructure of the Farm forward. We are now starting to focus on areas that better enable us to meet our mission of teaching environmental and agricultural science to students and their families. We are working to make the horse program stronger while developing other program areas at the Farm. It is an exciting time. The board and staff will be working together to map out the vision for the Farm to go forward and be stronger than ever.
Something ‘blue’ is coming back home! Our TUF tractor returns from the repair shop and will be delivered when the weather permits. TUF really needs the tractor and I would like to thank Jonathon Candee for his efforts to raise the money to get the blue tractor fixed. It is a valuable asset for maintaining the Farm. When I started in June we had only one, loaned ATV at the Farm and no other functioning vehicles, now we have a utility vehicle, the old white truck, and the blue tractor all working. This is a tangible sign we are moving forward.
Cheers to an incredible New Year,
Volunteer Of The Month
Thank You AGAIN For Breaking Ice!
With the cold temperatures in the evenings and especially the last week of December, we’ve really appreciated the help breaking the ice for the animals’ drinking water. It is a tedious task and the help is always greatly appreciated!
If you have a volunteer you would like to nominate, please email us at email@example.com.
