Growing, Giving, and Learning Project
An introduction to organic and climate friendly farming
The Growing, Giving, and Learning Program brings local children to our farm to provide them with hands-on experiences working in fields and harvesting vegetables, while helping them develop a deeper understanding of local solutions to food insecurity, healthy food, and climate-friendly farming practices.
Through this hands-on experience, children will:
- Learn basic information about food systems and local food insecurity.
- Learn basic information about health-friendly and climate-friendly farming.
- Develop seasonal gardening skills (how to put gardens to bed in the fall, spread compost in the spring, harvest veggies from early spring to early fall, etc.).
- Develop appreciation for the positive impact volunteering and service can have on our community and ourselves.
Please review the program details:
- Program runs mid-April through November. All programs at the farm are subject to cancellation due to extreme weather conditions.
