Event description

Description

Chaperoned classes are invited to tour the farm and receive hands-on farm education. Visits are 1.5 hours long and topics include: planting and plant needs, composting and worms, harvesting, insects and pollinators, and nutrition. Field trip focus can be tailored to specific class requests, and material covered meets DCPS standards. Students are engaged in physical activity on the farm, from weeding to sifting compost, in order to reinforce learning. Tasks and activities will differ for different age groups.

Field trips are 1.5 hours long and are held Tuesdays or Wednesdays in September, October, April, May and June. Ideal timing is 9:30-11 am, but they can also be scheduled to start later. Select the date you would like from the drop down menu and then during registration you will select your time.

We can accommodate a maximum of 25 students per field trip.

In order to cover the cost of staff, materials and upkeep on the farm, schools are charged a fee for field trips on the farm. Fees are based on the percentage of students eligible for Free or Reduced Price meals (FRP):

50-100% of students eligible for FRP= $100.00 per field trip

0-50% of students eligible for FRP = $200.00 per field trip
We ask for advance payment in full or a deposit of 50% of your fee in order to reserve your date. After submitting this form, more information on our accepted payment types will be sent in a confirmation email.
Schools are responsible for arranging their own transport to the farm, which is accessible via Metro and several Metro bus routes.

For any questions, or if you wish to discuss your school's specific needs, please contact info@commongoodcityfarm.org
