Our fun filled programs get children outside by sharing the joy of exploring nature and the farm. Our experienced educators support each child’s innate curiosity about the world around them as a guide for teaching about safely interacting with our outdoors and stewarding a better future.
Children leave our programs with a desire to be environmental citizens, confidence to be mentors of their peers, a heightened sense of compassion for living things, and and an understanding of where their food comes from.
Daily activities include interactions with farmyard animals, garden and farmyard exploration, nature discovery, traditional arts and crafts including basket making and fiber arts (from our alpaca’s fiber), solar cooking, and community building activities.
Weekly themes delve into a particular area of farmyard stewardship / environmental citizenship specific to the season.
