- Finally  I am back at Stone Barns after a week off (I went to Boston)
- Before my tour a maintenance worker showed me where all the animals were moved and while we were driving a car hit a chipmunk.  We picked it up and later on all of the interns attended its burial
- I gave a tour, it went really well even though it was super hot
- Martha Foose talked about her new book which focuses on southern cooking.  It was so great to listen to her!
- I technically only have three days left of this internship...  I'm staying anyway!

- I made a few possible children's games for a handout we will be giving for children exploring the farm
- There was a family dinner at 4:00.  The farm will be getting African Geese and a speaker came from  California.  He talked a lot about Edward Norton, apparently Edward is the head of his environmental filming company?

May 25
- Today I gave my first Livestock Tour. There were over 30 people (the biggest tour of the season). It went amazing, I can't wait to do more.
- After the public programs ran something called Farm to Table where people collect ingredients from the farm and then cook a small meal from it. There were two sessions, we were so busy I didnt even get to eat lunch.
- It was an amazing day. Afterwards we got to eat Green Tea sorbet that Erika made. And we made extra dumplings from the Farm to Table program and everyone ate them at 4:30.
