Garlic Scape Harvest Program

Are you familiar with garlic scapes? They are the unopened flower buds of the garlic plant, and we have them growing in abundance at Ambler Farm. Join Program Manager Kevin Meehan to learn about garlic and to harvest this flavorful crop.
We will harvest and grill the garlic scapes for all to enjoy, and each family will take some home.
Please wear comfortable clothes to help with the harvest.

This event will be held rain or shine. No fee.

Summer Program: Adventures at the Farm

Weeks of June 20th through August 8th, 2016
9:00am – 1:00pm
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 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.
