I love the name of this farm!
I have watched them from their opening and it is so inspiring to see their dedication to educating and informing all – about organic farming.
They visit the local schools to talk about Organic Farming. As a teacher I would definitely include them in my programmes no matter what level I was teaching at. This is one of the most effective ways of ensuring we have a future generation of young adults informed about the benefits of Organic Farming and the environmental and health ramifications of Farming with Chemicals.
They give farm tours with hands on activities for children of all ages. this is just an amazing outing for youth of all ages. They get to see with their own eyes that Organic Small Farms are a fun viable occupation that provides healthy nutritious food for the nation; lowers imports and protects the earth for future generations.
Their tours include fun and educational activities such as rolling compost games.
Multi media presentations.
and story telling.
They tailor their tours to all ages.
