Really wanna take a moment and give a s/o to a good friend. It takes a lot to be a friend in my book and she qualifies a million times over. In a world of people with siblings it’s nice to be misunderstood together... love you lil big sis. All the best in your new endeavors and me and mom are rooting for you! @jessicam118 #happybirthday #hbd #friends #manhattancountryschool c/o: @manhattancountryschoolfarm @manhattancountry #29yearsoffriendship #happy #mixedbabies #imjustaddinghashtagsforthesakeofit #likethis

Our MCS Farm throwback Thursday celebrates childhood play. A member of the Manhattan Country School Class of 2012 illustrates the joy, countless children have experienced sledding at the Farm. Scheduled “free time” is a vital part of our day and during the winter you’ll find kids spread out across the sledding hill above the frog pond. #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #experientialeducation #farmbasededucation #progressiveeducation #progressiveeducationnetwork #farmbasededucationnetwork #kidswhoplay #childcentered #playbasedlearning #playbasededucation #catskills #catskillmountains #catskillfarms #roxburyny #tbt #throwbackthursday

Even though one our MCS Farm staff members is off for some R & R, we always take the time for professional development. This is one of the largest wind farms in Costa Rica. Located at the base of the Rincon volcano, these industrial turbines stretch for miles. Costa Rica sources 93% of its energy from renewable resources, mostly hydro, but growing numbers of geothermal, wind and solar. One more experience to share with the Manhattan Country School community. #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #experientialeducation #traveleducation #renewableenergy #windpower #alwayslearning

No matter the season, we are so grateful for our farm based educators! #repost. @manhattancountryschoolfarm ・・・ On the eve of the Winter Solstice, we celebrate with this tbt photo of a member of the Manhattan Country School Class of 2011! Folklore speaks of many indicators of the upcoming seasons. Signs of a harsh winter can be “woodpeckers sharing a tree,” “thick hair on the back of a cows neck,” “for every fog in August, there will be equal numbers of snowfalls.” At the MCS Farm, regardless of the season, we’ve followed the lesson of, “there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.” Essentially saying, go outside! #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #mcsfarm #tbt #tbthursday #wintersolstice #kidswhoexplore #farmbasededucation #experientialeducation #progressiveeducation #snowplay

What is an acre? Our MCS Farm throwback Thursday shows members of the Manhattan Country School Class of 2009 using a measuring wheel to determine an acre in our upper steer pasture. An acre is 43,560 square feet or 66’x660’. To put this in perspective, it would take app. One hundred, 450 square foot studio apartments to fill an acre. One NYC block is 5 acres. Yankee Stadium is 2.5 acres. The Central Park Reservoir is 100 acres. The MCS Farm consists of 163.6 acres of fields, forests, streams and meadows for children to explore and learn from. #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #mcsfarm #farmbasededucation #placebasededucation #experientialeducation #progressiveeducation #learningbydoing #kidswhoexplore #kidswhofarm #catskills #catskillmountains #catskillfarms #upstateny #upstatenewyork #roxburyny #tbt #tbthursday

MCS Farm photo of the week. We’re selectively harvesting trees in the MCS Farm forest. Choosing specific species, in this case White Ash, will provide the Farm with fuel to heat our Textiles studio, rec room and to boil maple sap into syrup. It also opens the forest canopy to reduce competition and promote the growth of other trees. When our 7th and 8th grade students return in January, they’ll split the blocks by hand and stack it to season. This winters wood and most of next years is already stacked and dry. These kids will be paying it forward by providing firewood for students and teachers even after they’ve graduated. #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #mcsfarm #farmbasededucation #placebasededucation #experientialeducation #experientiallearning #regenerativeagriculture #kidswhofarm #healthyforests #foresthealth #catskillforest #firewood #catskillfarms #delawarecountyny #upstateny #roxburyny #regenerativeforestry

More roasted pumpkins mean more pumpkin “scraps” for our chickens. The cycle of these chickens eating pumpkins to help them produce eggs that will go in pumpkin rich recipes is not lost on us. #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #mcsfarm #farmlife #wastenothing #chickensofinstagram #catskillmountains #catskillfarms #diversefarming #restorativeagriculture #regenerativeagriculture

MCS Farm photo of the week. At first glance this appears to be a lovely photo of a student and teacher. Look closer and what you have is an incredible example of STEAM in practice. S-Science The process of dying yarn into vibrant colors. T-Technology The use of a human powered machine to weave the yarn into fabric. E-Engineering The process of using this human engineered machine to engineer a tightly woven cloth that should be the basic right of every human to possess. A-Art The opportunity to create with your own hands, mind and imagination. M-Math The need to calculate the pattern, count the change to the mechanism and multiply the endless joy when having this experience! #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #mcsfarm #farmbasededucation #farmbasededucationnetwork #progressiveeducation #progressiveeducationnetwork #experientialeducation #learnbydoing #kidswhoweave #fiberart #fiberartist #weaving

Some of our 8-9’s (3rd grade) prepare the vegetable garden beds for next spring. Even with some snow on the ground, the kids added fresh, organic compost created here at the MCS Farm to the raised beds. Our students are soil farmers first and foremost, practicing restorative and regenerative agriculture. #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #mcsfarm #kidswhogarden #kidswhofarm #organicgardening #organicgarden #restorativeagriculture #regenerativeagriculture #foodjustice #farmbasededucation #farmbasededucationnetwork #placebasededucation #progressiveeducation #experientialeducation #learningbydoing #catskillfarms

MCS Farm video of the week. The day alternated between a brisk wind with bluebird skies, to full on whiteout conditions. Winter is trying to take control, but fall is digging in its heals. #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #mcsfarm #changingweather #catskillmountains #catskills #catskillweather #farminginallweather

In Textiles Class this week our 6th grade worked on “needle felting.” They carded, washed and dyed raw fleece from their sheep to create fiber art! #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #mcsfarm #farmbasededucation #experientialeducation #progressiveeducation #progressiveeducationnetwork #farmbasededucationnetwork #fiberart #kidswhofarm #farmfriday

Celebrating Halloween at the MCS Farm over the years has seen our kids parading and trick or treating in the Village of Roxbury.

The future’s so bright, we gotta wear shades 😎☀️ Loving the hard work done by our friends over @manhattancountryschoolfarm to optimize alternative energy on their property. What renewable resources are your organizations tapping into? ... #Repost @manhattancountryschoolfarm with @get_repost ・・・ Manhattan Country School 6th grade had the responsibility of changing the orientation of our solar array to best capture the suns energy at its winter angle. Our system employs 140 panels on 14 towers. A large sign on our barn says “This Farm is powered by the sun.” The sun sure gets a lot of help from children. #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #mcsfarm #farmbasededucation #placebasededucation #kidswhofarm #studentfarm #solarpanels #solarpower #farmbasededucationnetwork #progressiveeducation #progressiveeducationnetwork #renewableenergy #harvestthesun #catskillmountains #catskillfarms #roxburyny #delawarecountyny

Paying it forward. Refilling the sawdust bucket in the evening so people who have morning barn chores have enough bedding material for our animals. Systems thinking might seem like a difficult topic to achieve, but when implemented it’s quite elegant.#manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #mcsfarm #kidswhofarm #studentfarmer #studentfarm #farmbasededucation #progressiveeducation

The quick onset of winter-like temps had us harvesting and storing pumpkins out of frosts way. This red “cheese wheel” variety called Rouge Vif d’Entampes will be steamed and frozen for use throughout the school year. #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #mcsfarm #organicgardening #organicfarming #farmbasededucation #growiteatit #pumpkins #catskillfarms #roxburyny #delawarecountyny #studentfarm
