Summer Program: Adventures at the Farm

Weeks of June 18th through August 6th
This unique farm program provides an opportunity for students to experience farm life. Students will not only learn about the plants in our educational gardens but have opportunities to work in the gardens; spending time with our sheep, goats and pigs is a favorite activity as well as checking to see if our chickens have laid eggs. Baby chicks, ducks, turkeys and rabbits provide engaging opportunities for kids to interact and learn. Each week includes woodworking, hayrides, planting, harvesting, hands on projects, animals, cooking and more! Students are divided by grade levels for appropriate activities, which will change each week for variety.

Youth Apprentice Program

Open Houses: March 10th + March 17th at 3:00pm
This unique six-month program (May – October 2018) is for students currently in grades 5-11. We are only accepting new apprentices in grades 5-8. Apprentices meet several times a week to plant, maintain and harvest the farm’s educational gardens and work with Farmer Jonathan in the production gardens. They also care for our rabbits, goats, pigs, sheep and chickens. The group works collaboratively to assist in all aspects of the farm including teaching younger children about farm activities. Apprentices are actively involved in farm-related tasks. The work can be challenging but incredibly rewarding – the program includes many special events such as Ambler Farm Day, a farm-to-table soup-and-salad experience, a bonfire, campout, and more.
An extraordinary, hands-on program. Parents and prospective apprentices are invited to attend an open house to learn about the program and ensure it is a good fit. Contact Jennifer Grass at jennifer@amblerfarm.org for more information. Learn More!
Cost: $500 per Member Child, $600 per Non-Member Child
