SCHOOL AGE PROGRAMS

Field Trips

We offer field trips for area schools, scouting groups, homeschool groups and more.  We offer field trips in May-October and they typically last 1.5 hours.  Children will engage in real work around the farm-it might be seeding, transplanting, harvesting, watering, or clearing a bed.  We always include a sensory tour as well which engages children to explore using sight, sound, taste, smell and touch.   We can also customize aspects of the field trip based on units of study and curricular tie-in.  Cost is $75-$150 depending on the size of the group.

Camp Starfish

Camp Starfish is a six week camp for 5-12 year olds that meets at the YMCA.  Twice a week, the campers come out to the farm to work, learn, explore, cook and eat.  On Mondays, campers work on the farm or in the learning garden and engage in hands-on learning.  On Fridays, campers work with a chef to harvest vegetables and then transform them into a delicious dish!  Kids love to eat what they helped grow, harvest and prepare!
