What does a day of Homeschool on the Farm look like?

  • Study Sessions (2 hours) — The Study Sessions offered during the 2022-23 school year are below. During the two-hour study session, students will go in-depth on each topic, discovering and learning how these areas are essential to our Farm and ecosystem.
  • Work the Ground (1 hour) — There are always things to do on the Farm! Students will be able to experience seasonal activities, including preparing the soil for planting, starting seeds, transplanting seedlings, watering, weeding, harvesting, or any other task needed to prepare the Farm to function at its best. We'll check on the chickens, see what they need for the day, and collect their eggs. This one-hour option will change with the season, month, or day.
  • Enjoy the Harvest (1-2 hours) — During this time, students will enjoy the fruits of their labor and witness first-hand how flavorful fruits and vegetables are when they are grown locally and picked at the peak of harvest. During this session, students will learn a new skill set specific to harvesting, preparing, and eating produce.
