Multi-week Learning Garden programs for ages 2-6. Fall is the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors! From cooking delicious food, to harvesting our fall crops to caring for the Waltham Fields' chickens, there's so much to do! Our Learning Garden Programs enable hands-on nature exploration and introduce young children to the natural world. Children participate in a range of activities such as planting vegetables, exploring the compost pile, observing wildlife, playing games, and cooking. We focus on Farm-to-Table programming, providing opportunities for participants to make and try healthful, farm fresh snacks in the solar powered kitchen of our outdoor classroom.
For ages 2-4 and their caregivers. This is a lovely introduction to food, gardening and the environment. From cooking healthy recipes to singing songs and playing farm-based games, this is a great chance for you and your toddler to get out and explore the natural world.
Six hour-long sessions, Thursdays 10am-11am, or 11:30-12:30, or Fridays 10am-11am.
Please Note: All sessions take place outdoors, rain or shine! Please wear closed-toed shoes, bring sun protection (sunscreen, a hat), a reusable water bottle, and rain gear if necessary.
We look forward to seeing you on the farm this season!
