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 II classes – Chickens and eggs, Harvest pizza – a study of gluten, Farm to fork – a journey of food, Trees
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.
