Every class was treated to a trip to the Farmer's Institute today! Students visited stations including a Blacksmith Workshop, the Bittancourt House Museum, Spinning Mill, Antique Machinery, Saw Mill and a video on pioneer farming on Salt Spring Island. Thank you very much to all the volunteers at the SSI Farmer's Institute for their time and effort and also to the Institute for paying for two school bus trips to and from today!  Everybody had a great time (Teachers, students and the volunteers). Teachers commented it was "amazing" and the volunteers commented how great Fernwood students were!
