We are in our fourth year of running the science and agriculture education program for homeschool students ages 6–11.
Together with our highly-qualified instructors, students share the experience of exploring, discovering and learning the concepts together in order to gain a deeper, scientific understanding of agriculture and ecology.
Session I classes – Amazing Arachnids, Earthworms and other soil macroinvertebrates, Our relationship with Connecticut River, Orchard exploration
Our approach utilizes hands-on activities, inquiry-based investigations, games, and experiments. Journals are provided each semester for students to take notes or draw observations, if they wish, and to complete short weekly review assignments.
Our farm is an incredible outdoor classroom including production fields, forested areas, an orchard, and a riparian area along the Connecticut River.
*Session II runs from October 16 to November 6
