Bring your class on a field trip to 21 Acres. A tour of our farm encourages discovery, sensory engagement, new relationships with plants, animals, and fungi, and insight into environmental stewardship. On tours, we encourage discussion about climate action and growing food through age-specific curricula integrated with teachers’ materials. Purposeful hands-on activities and opportunities to try fresh, local, organic food help to create a unique, living classroom experience. If you’re interested in all-things seeds specifically, like we are, learn about our AB Seed Project!
We schedule field trips Monday through Friday. Groups are welcome to bring lunch and picnic on the farm. There is a fee of $95 for up to 19 students; each additional student, for groups of 20 or larger, is $5.00. Scholarship forms are available upon request.
