Youth Education Program
The successful future of our food system is highly dependent upon our children’s understanding of how and where food is produced and how it gets to consumers. We provide myriad opportunities for youth to get excited and involved.
Learn and Grow!
We have made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel summer camps in 2022. We will also not be leading field trips. With so much uncertainty remaining as to the changing COVID-19 situation, this was the best decision we could make for our community at this time. Thank you for your continued community and understanding.
For those of you who have instantly had to become full-time home educators due to stay at home orders and for those of you who have been homeschooling quite some time, here are some great resources to support your work.
The 21 Acres Youth Education Program includes field trips, farm camps, culinary adventures, and special events. We provide fun environments, like our Certified Organic farm and local foods kitchen, where kids can connect to the places where food is grown, harvested, and prepared. Each program is thoughtfully designed to address the question: “Where does my food come from and how can I make a difference in the climate?” We’re dedicated to answering this and energizing future generations to play an active role in engaging with their local food systems.
Interested in bringing your class out to explore the farm? We have field trips that encourage discovery and exploration of environmental stewardship for youth starting in Pre-K up through college level and beyond.
