Explore life on the farm as we learn about where our food comes from, gardening, animal care, watersheds, soils, waste, and more!
Older students participate in our “Food for Thought” curriculum that examines issues like local and sustainable food systems and undertakes major building projects here on the Farm. Younger students focus on caring for plants and animals.
All of our Farm School programs emphasize the importance of students doing meaningful work on the Farm. Students do morning chores, muck stalls, work in the garden beds, and more!
Students also participate in journaling exercises, animal time, science experiments, and a whole range of hands-on activities as they learn and grow here at the Farm.
Farm School lasts between two and five days, depending on your group’s goals and needs.
Your Farm School experience is built around one of the following themes:
Agricultural Sciences – Examine the integration of biology, physical science, economics, and social sciences that coalesce in the study of agriculture.
Food – Investigate the multidisciplinary intersections that shape our contemporary food systems.
Local Ecology – Explore the interconnected communities and relationships within the diverse ecosystems across our farm.
