On October 12, 2013 the Beijing Shuren-Ribet American High School visited the Shared Harvest Farm in Tongzhou as part of a cross- curricular field trip. The students picked corn, pulled carrots, learned about the importance of organic farming and had a delicious meal. We visited a chicken farm and learned how it works.
