Our School & Farm
We promote a sense of a farm community and incorporate agricultural and nature lessons whenever possible. Our high expectations and work ethic are reminiscent of farm life and encourage children to excel in all curriculum areas.
Our children participate in gleaning opportunities at local farms and have harvested over one thousand pounds of produce to help feed those in need.
The students plant gardens in the fall and spring and enjoy sampling herbs from our herb garden.
- Animal Care
We house animals from the different animal classifications of mammals, reptiles, birds and amphibians. Daily care and handling of the animals are the responsibility of the students with guidance from the staff. The families in our community have the option of “adopting” an animal for the year and caring for them during school breaks.
- Hen Hutch
Our hens are cared for by the children. They are thrilled each time they find eggs in the roost.
We compost food and animal litter.
