Big Kids Farm Class: Summer
Thursday's 4PM - 4:45PM
8/6/2020 - 9/10/2020
Come explore and learn about the workings of an organic + regenerative farm! Our Little's Farm Class is best suited for kids between the ages of 8 years - 11(ish) years. Parents/guardians are not required attend, but are always welcome to attend if they wish. This course will run once/week for 6 weeks total. Closed toe shoes are required, and clothes may get dirty!
The theme of the Summer course will be "Growth". Kids will be provided with organic vegetable seeds to plant their own community garden, while also having an opportunity to harvest and bring home their vegetables. Kids will also be introduced to the basics of caring for goats, chickens, & ducks. There will be ample opportunities for interacting with and feeding the farm animals. Kids will also be invited to collect and bring home their own farm fresh eggs straight from the chicken coop. (Egg production naturally increases and decreases throughout the season, so amounts cannot be guaranteed.)
Frenchie Farm takes COVID-19 very seriously. Class sizes will remain small and will be held 100% outdoors. To ensure the health and safety of all, we will require temperature checks upon arrival. Parents are welcome to bring their own thermometer. We will also have a thermometer available and will properly disinfect between uses. Hand sanitizer stations are set up throughout the farm as well. By offering Farm Classes, we are opening our home and farm to the community. We ask you to please be respectful and stay home if you and/or a family member is ill. Kids and/or adults displaying symptoms will kindly be asked to leave the farm.
In the event of inclement weather, farm classes will be cancelled and a makeup class will be offered.
In the event that the student is unable to attend class, one makeup class will be allowed per 6 week session. Makeup sessions will be offered 1x/month.
