Meet Luis and Sarah –
These two students are from the Polaris School in East Hartford. They had the opportunity to volunteer in the CLCC greenhouse, and now they are learning about the jobs at the Round Hill Alpaca Farm. The Round Hill Alpaca Farm hosts several alpacas which will be part of the CLCC farm when it is up and running.
Each week students come not only to see and learn about the alpacas, but also to learn and help with all the various tasks needed to keep the farm in good order.
Luis says that he likes to work with animals – getting to know their names and all about alpacas. Luis enjoys learning how to use the leaf blower and digging the aged compost into buckets to bring back to the school’s vegetable garden.
Sarah loves to fill the feed bins and the hay feeders. They enjoy feeding the alpacas treats and watching them in the pasture.
Thanks to both of you for jobs well done!
