Bring your classroom or preschool group to the farm for a fun and educational field trip! Our farm is a perfect place to learn about plants, insects, food, and nutrition. Visit our greenhouses, where hundreds of vegetables and flowers begin their lives, the fields where they grow and where birds and insects make their home. All classes include a visit with the barn animals.
Class topics include:
Plants—from germination to seed dispersal
Insects—life cycles and their role in nature
Invertebrates—snails, slugs and earthworms
Tasty Gardens—food and nutrition
Animals on the Farm—focus on the Barn Animals
Or, speak with our Education Director about designing a program especially suited to your current curriculum.
Visits are 1 ½ hours long for elementary school groups, one hour for preschool groups. Groups may bring a lunch and picnic on the grounds
There are many benefits to children and adults who visit Common Ground Farm: the joy of picking and tasting fresh food from the garden, the satisfaction that comes from working hard to plant, weed, hoe or harvest, the peacefulness of being outside in the wind and sun with clouds and birds and insects all around. We welcome scout troops, college classes, homeschool groups, clubs, and other organized groups. Please contact our Education Director to discuss the many options for your visit.
