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 included 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.
Apprentice Farmer Summer Program
This exciting program enters its third year this summer and is designed for students entering grades 8 through 11. Students meet at Ambler Farm each morning and start the day by working with our animals. They will then work in the production gardens alongside Ambler Farm’s agricultural director under the guidance of Jim Hunter, the Wilton High School teacher who founded, created and oversees the high school’s Organic Garden. This highly interactive program immerses kids in organic farming and helps them understand the importance of how we raise our food.
Family Garlic Harvesting Program
Join Program Manager Kevin Meehan to learn all about garlic – from planting, harvesting, drying and storing – as you harvest your own organic garlic. Each family will receive some heads of garlic to take home.
