An interesting piece of history of the Parkville Nature Sanctuary: the land was once the Park College Farm where students worked to offset the cost of their education. Students fed and milked dairy cattle, raised pigs, goats, chickens and sheep, and tended seven beehives. They grew vegetables and fruit; the surplus was canned or stored in the root cellar. Students also grew 2,000 bushels of wheat a year. The food they produced fed all the students back in the early 1900's.
Hope you are enjoying your Memorial Weekend! Tomorrow we have a Phalp family get together.
