Middle School Farm Club - (Grades 5 - 8)                                                                                                
This outdoor program allows students to 'un-plug' from the digital world, reconnect with nature, and learn the ins and outs of organic farming and gardening through hands-on instruction.  Outdoors on the pastoral Wakeman Town Farm property, students will participate in a variety of daily farm activities which include planning, planting and harvesting the garden along with taking care of the various farm animals (rabbits, chickens, ducks, goats, alpacas, and sheep).  Building projects and activities will be offered in a fun and engaging manner.  This program is great for students who like to 'get their hands dirty' while learning about the environment and having fun at the same time. Please bring a nut-free snack, a reusable water bottle, and wear closed-toed shoes and warm clothes that can dirty.

Cooking Around The Globe  - (Grades 5 - 8)

Using farm-fresh ingredients, this series will take our young chef's around the world, starting in our local gardens! In the farm's new commercial kitchen. Chef Lisa Finn will cover basic knife skills and cooking techniques, like mise en place (putting everything in its place),  while exploring creative ways of making delicious, farm-fresh, simple and nutritious recipes with some ingredients plucked straight out of own organic gardens!

Get ready for the blooming season with a fresh new harvest that will take our spring series from South America to Southeast Asia! The spring global tasting tour will include everything from Thai Chicken Zoodle soup (with zucchini & rice noodles), Shumai Sticky Rice Dumplings, Savory Meat & Veggie-filled Empanadas to Coconut Tres Leches (Milk Cake). Of course, eating what we cook is always part of the fun. Let the food journey begin!
