Junior Farm Club (Grades: 2 - 7)

Kids in our outdoor farm club are thrilled to experience what it is to be a real farmer and get their hands dirty! Learn about sustainable farming first-hand through planting, tending, and harvesting a garden, composting, and feeding and caring for animals. Get to know AJ the alpaca, our sheep, goats, rabbits and chickens! Please wear closed-toed shoes and warm clothes that can get dirty. Bring a nut-fee snack, a reusable water bottle and plenty of enthusiasm; it's always a lot of fun on the farm!

Kids Farm to Table Cooking 101- (Grades: 2 - 5)
Join us as we pick an early-season bounty, such as organic vegetables and herbs from our gardens, and then learn how to cook with the flavors of early spring. Recipes include favorites like Spring Veggie Tarts, Spring Salad Pizza, Lemon Bars and Homemade Strawberry Jam. While learning new recipes and having fun, we will develop lifelong culinary skills, including knife-handling and using a variety of kitchen appliances and gadgets. We will leave the six-week session feeling more seasonally aware and more confident in the kitchen. And, of course, eating what we cook is always part of the fun!
