Earth Day at Quaker Farm
Earth Day at Quaker Farm, a Quaker inspirational video, was created to share the importance of sustainable
living choices as they relate to climate
change. Our earth is precious and we need to take better care of it. We hope our Earth Day video
inspires you to cherish
the planet we share. Please pass it on, we hope it can be of use to others, especially perhaps
elementary school teachers and home schooling families. Viewers especially like the horse birth and the
muscovy duck hatching from an egg!
The Quaker Farm barn is a host site for a Alcona County Quilt
Trail Project. We have a 8'x8' quilt block with the "North Star"
design to commemorate the life-saving work of the
Underground Railroad which the State of Michigan and Quakers played major roles in.
