*** THIS EVENT IS ONLY FOR UPLAND CC FAMILIES ***


PROGRAM

Students will be given opportunities during the garden tour to taste, touch, smell and pick some of the crops grown here at the farm. Each student will be given a brown lunch sack to collect their fruits and vegetables to take home. The docents leading the groups will let the students know which plants their allowed to taste, touch, and pick, our docents are regular volunteers at the farm and are very familiar with the crops.

We have added rabbits to the farm and students will learn about the different breeds and their uses. If you’re comfortable with letting students pet the rabbits, it will be allowed. We have hand washing stations for the students to wash up after they pet the rabbits. Students will plant row crops in the garden and plant seeds in cell trays to help the farm prepare for new crops. They will also be allowed to plant seeds and seedlings in 4” pots to take home for their own gardens. Students will grind corn using old fashion corn grinders that will be fed to the resident chickens at the farm. They will also learn how to make rope using sisal twine made from the “jute” plant.

Students will also participate in various lessons on plants, water, insects, soil, and healthy eating.
