Latest News & Notices

Let us know if you would like a visit from Fiona!

This is Fiona and she is an eight-year-old Sulcata Tortoise. Fiona was invited to teach the children attending the Coombs Barnyard Farm Camp about recycling and how to compost. Fiona helped the campers ages 5 to 12 understand just how long it takes for our discarded items to degrade and why it’s so important to recycle all we can and to compost our food waste. Fiona is going to live to be 150 years old and, sadly, the fishing line left on the beach will be around far longer – 600 years! The disposable diaper will outlast Fiona, too. It will be around for 550 years. The plastic milk container will be around for 50 to 80 years, and the steel can for 50 years. It’s a good thing they can be recycled!
