The idea of spring break brings with it images of sun and sand. But this past week, for 11 students from Brandeis University, it meant, among other things, building a fence on the National Colonial Farm at Piscataway Park. Accokeek Foundation Volunteer Maryland Coordinator Casey Lowe worked for months to prepare a service experience for these students that would be meaningful to them and truly helpful to the Accokeek Foundation. Not only did these students build a fence, but they also cleared brush from the Blackberry Trail, fed livestock, and prepared a high tunnel on the Ecosystem Farm.
Congratulations to this wonderful group of students and the VMC Casey Lowe on several jobs well-done!
