Junior Homesteaders Farm Club (grade K - 5)

Does your child love animals? Would they love to pet a fuzzy rabbit, see where eggs come from, tend goats or sheep or pick tomatoes off the vine? Elementary school children in our Homesteaders' club are thrilled to experience real farming and gardening activities, including planting and harvesting along with farm animal care. Crafts, activities, games, story readings and explore nature will be highlighted during this program. Please bring a nut-free snack, a reusable water bottle and wear closed-toe shoes and warm clothes that can get dirty.

Kids Farm to Table (grade 3 - 6)
Farm to table 101 is specially designed with older elementary school chefs in mind. Participants join Chef Kathy in Tim's Kitchen to learn new recipes, like spinach and artichoke dip, potato pancakes, Minestrone soup, homemade pasta, plus some fun baked treats. Our jr. chefs develop lifelong culinary skills, including knife-handling and using a variety of kitchen appliances and gadgets. They leave the 8 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!
