WORKSHOPS AND ACTIVITIES (Choose One)

Fruit Tasting and Brixing

We encourage individuals to taste test different varieties of the same fruit, in order to appreciate the complexities of each variety. For example, you can taste test our 5 different types of pluots, or compare our 3 pear varieties in the Fall. We can also walk participants through Brix testing, which is a process used to measure the sugars in fruits to determine readiness for harvest using a refractometer.

Garden Tour and Meet the Chickens

An interactive walk around the vegetable garden. Smell herbs, taste kale, look at starters in the greenhouse. Learn about and observe different crops at various stages of life. Discuss beneficial plants, pollination in the garden, and meet our family of chickens.

Scavenger Hunt in the Garden

Using clues, students will search the garden for all sorts of plants and animals. Clues will encourage students to use all of their senses; to feel a fuzzy leaf, spot a dragonfly, taste an herb or observe curly chicken feathers. Recommended for students K-4th grade.

Cooking Lesson

Learn to make and taste test a simple and healthy snack using ingredients from our farm. For example, make Kale-pomegranate salad or homemade plum lemonade (Additional cost may apply).
