Thanks to special guest Eloise Flesh for talking with us about her experience volunteering on a local veggie farm. Eloise is 16 year old and attends The School of the Future, NYC and has been volunteering on Tovey Halleck’s veggie farm since 2008. This season has inspired Eloise to craft a “homegrown” line of necklaces made with watermelon, cantaloupe and cucumber seeds.
