On-Farm Educational Visits

 

REAL HANDS ON FARMING!!

 

We at Good Humus believe that kids should have a fun and educational experience on our farm, so we try and integrate them into the real workings of the farm as much as possible. Their time at the farm will be following the daily patterns of the seasonal harvest, and the family’s life. The rest of the farm continues on as usual when the kids are here so they become definite helpers.

 

While no farming experience is required, participating kids should be in good health and be willing to listen, learn and be respectful of the farming family. There will be many tasks that you will be participating in, while lending a hand at Good Humus.

 

Each month has a different set of projects and activities that the visiting classes will be helping with. The program throughout the year is a month by month breakdown of these activities.

We also offer the possibility of two-day visits by school groups that involve a sleep-over on the farm. Check our overnight trips for more information about classes wishing to camp out
