Summer Program: Adventures at the Farm
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 and goats is a favorite activity as well as checking to see if our chickens have laid eggs. Baby chicks, rabbits and visiting animals provide engaging opportunities for kids to interact and learn. Each week is sure to include woodworking, hayrides, planting, harvesting, hands on projects, animals, cooking and more! Students will be divided by grade levels for appropriate grade level activities. Each week consists of different activities.
Registration for our Summer programs is open.
Our preschool program is full but there is still room in our 1-7th grade program!
Apprentice Farmer Summer Program

This exciting program enters its second year this summer and is designed for students entering grades 8 through 11.

This program immerses kids in organic farming and helps them understand the importance of how we raise our food. This is a highly interactive program that provides kids with an opportunity to get involved in exciting farm activities.
