This program is designed to offer the students the opportunity to connect with themselves and with nature. They will learn about the process of market gardening and they will have the chance to take part in many aspects of growing and processing food and herbs from starting seeds in the greenhouse to helping build and sell food in our on-site produce stand. Through individual and community-based projects, students will have the opportunity to explore and further their own interests as well as expand their communication and collaborative abilities by engaging in real-world, building projects and activities.
This loosely structured farm experience will allow children and their adults the opportunity to share space and connect with each other while exploring nature through hands-on activities. Children will learn about the farm and gardening through active exploration, group projects, and interactive play.
-All ages welcome; must be a parent or guardian on-site (don’t worry- you will have fun too!)
-Free offering. Donations accepted. Farm fresh produce available for purchasing.
