FARM TO SCHOOL PROGRAMS

Cultivating healthy kids, environmental stewardship, farm relationships, and the local economy.

This simple concept holds great potential as a solution to two of the major challenges facing our society: concerns about the diet and health of children and the dwindling of small farms.

At HHF, students learn about local organic agriculture and nutrition through hands-on activities that incorporate math, science, art, and writing as well as practical life skills such as cooking, gardening, problem solving, and working together.

Harvest Meals

A 3–4 hour farm visit that includes a variety of age-appropriate lessons and activities in the field and kitchen. Students will participate in harvesting and cooking lunch at the farm. Harvest Meals are offered in the fall, September–October and in the spring, April–June.

Garden & Snack

A one and a half hour field trip at the pumpkin patch at HHF for preschool–first grade students. The field trips introduce children to the plant life cycle and compost; fall abundance allows identifying and sampling in the field and each child will harvest a small pumpkin to take home. Tours are available Tuesday and Wednesday in the month of October.
