Tiki Love Farm

One of our goals at FlexSchool is to engage with the community, and this time it wasn’t all fun and games when the students got their hands dirty (literally) and suited up with gloves, hammers, and other tools during our visit to the Tiki Love Farm.

FlexSchool heads Outdoors

On Friday the 13th, we visited Tiki Love Farm, home to many local fun furry friends!  Before heading over, the students had a science study hall session in preparation for the trip.  We met a miniature horse, Eve, and her 2 month old baby, Sweet Tiki Love. Barney, a retired horse in his late twenties, was relaxing after a long career. The animals loved basking in the sun on the crisp autumn day and playing with their FlexSchool friends.  One of our goals at FlexSchool is to engage with the community, so it wasn’t all fun and games while we were there. Students got their hands dirty (literally) and suited up with gloves, hammers, and other tools.  They creatively deconstructed and then re-purposed wooden pallets to make a small bench and chair (for the animals, of course).  While some students worked, others walked and we noticed an abandoned fox hole.  The goats, Cassie and Snow White, seemed to enjoy our presence even though they are both pregnant with multiples.  And some of our students couldn’t keep their hands off the chickens, Potato, Mufasa, and Simba, among others.  The coop housed a recent deposit in the form of an egg from one of the hens, but we left it there to help encourage the others to lay their eggs.  We hope to visit again during our spring “fresh air” month when the new baby goats make their appearance as there are fun trails to walk along.
