James R. Schirle Elementary School. Salem, OR 6

I’m at James R. Schirle Elementary today speaking to K-5 students. It’s a little over 40 miles from the farm, so again, another day without airports, airplanes, and hotels, which is always a pleasure. Speaking of which, so are the kids and teachers at Schirle. A wonderful bunch of excited […]
