Pell Elementary School students and faculty recently took part in the Great Apple Crunch on the lawn across from the school. Farm Fresh R.I. helped to facilitate the event, which was held in recognition of Local Food Day. Apples were purchased from Steere Farms in Greenville R.I. and representatives of the Steere family were on site to answer the children's questions and view a video loop of life on the farm. Following the event, The Compost Plant transported the cores to Earth Care Farm where they will be turned into compost.­
