The program will introduce kids to basic farming practices, allowing them to plant and harvest in our large garden and greenhouse. We will learn about what grows in Connecticut and what all of us can do with just a small amount of space, or even containers! Kids will leave with the skills to grow some of their own veggies to share with their families! Kids will also learn about the animals that we have on our farm, including chickens, ducks, turkeys, guinea fowl, donkey, pigs, sheep, goats, cows, and a llama. We will discuss the care of these animals and the kids will be allowed to participate in their care….and their play! Additionally, each day will allow time for either a nature themed Art class, an Earth and food science class, or nature crafts with specialized teachers.
The program will have two separate sessions:
Session I: Monday July 07-Friday July 11
Session II: Monday July 14-Friday July 18
All sessions are open to children from the age of 5-12 years old.
All days will start at 9am and end at 1pm. A healthy snack and drink will be provided. Lunch will not be included in our day.
The total price for the week is $300 per child. There will be a 10% discount off the fee for a second child in a family.
If you are interested, please email me with your session preferences. To maintain a minimum of 1 adult to six children, we can accommodate a max of 12 children for each session, so please sign up quickly if you are interested. Thank you for your continued support of our family farm!
