“The farmers were EXCELLENT with the kids. They allowed freedom for them to ask questions and express ideas while still keeping control on the group and providing fun and educational information!” – Non-DPS Teacher

“These are the best strawberries because they came from the Hub Farm!” – DPS Student

“I thought the experience was a great enrichment to what our students have been doing in class. We did the theory and this was the practical which will cement concepts they learned.

I loved it!” DPS Teacher
