The first day designed just for homeschoolers took place on Friday,
June 19, 2009, at the Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum. Students and
their accompanying adults took part in a variety of activities,
ranging from making herb satchels to learning about gardening
to assisting the historic cook (that’d be ME) whip up some grub.
