This past week we welcomed back the Haverford Crew Team for their annual workday at Rushton Farm. It was their fourth year of coming out and doing fieldwork to help the battle-weary Rushton Staff. Pulling stakes, harvesting sangria watermelons and pulling up irrigation lines saves the Rushton Staff hours of labor.
Coach Stephanik makes it especially fun by starting the day with a relaxing four-mile run around the beautiful landscape of Rushton Woods Preserve. I sure get tired of watching the young men do laps around the farm. In all sincerity, their service helps us greatly at a time where we could use a little help. With intern Gage playing Indiana Jones at the University of Minnesota and intern Aidan swimming with dogs off the coast of Rhode Island (watch the waves, Aidan, it might be getting stormy) we are grateful for the crew team lending a helping hand.
Good luck in the upcoming season!
