Family centered field day at the organic acres at Thompson Research Farm. 

See how cotton and peanuts grow, learn about "good" bugs and "bad" bugs, taste the best roasted peppers, learn about food preservation, bend hoops for high tunnels, watch plastic mulch equipment in action (laying, lifting and recycling) and get tips from researchers about gardening, growing and composting practices. Go on a wagon ride, get your face painted and enjoy farm-fresh snacks.
