An Early Spring Break

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!
