Our field trips offer a variety of hands-on, experiential, multi-sensory learning experiences for school (and other) groups. Students are immersed in the seasonal work of the farm. We teach grade-level science concepts linked to in-school curricula and state standards, as well as “eat a rainbow” nutrition. We emphasize a “seed to mouth” or “field to fork” full circle understanding of sustainable food production. We strive to share an ethic of environmental stewardship, which is exemplified in our organic farming practices and on-farm environmental conservation projects.
Art on the Farm combines science and art, this camp is a week long, full day exploration of the wonders of nature through farming and artistic expression. Activities may include printing from natural materials, musical instrument making, working in the education demonstration garden, cheese making, or felting.
Sprouts - The youngest campers, 3-6 years old, explore the farm through the five senses, learning to love getting dirty, eating fresh picked produce, and playing with the farm animals.
Young Farmers - Campers spend the week learning about farming, food preparation, and preservation throughhands-on activities in our fields, Discovery Garden, and kitchen classroom. All participants, whether they love food or never let a leafy green cross their lips, enjoy exploring the processes of creating healthy and tasty meals beginning with a seed.
Fields & Meals Camp for Teens - Teens 11- 16 years old develop self reliance. Youth spend the whole day on the farm learning to grow food, then bringing it to the kitchen to prepare healthy snacks, beverages and meals to share with their families upon returning home in the evening.
