We’re growing chickens! This hands-on edition of our Meet the Farmer class will see kids and their caregivers help us set up our brand new incubator. We’ll get a crate ready to house our baby chicks after they hatch, set up their baby crate and heat source, place eggs in the incubator, and learn all about what’s involved with taking care of baby birds. Kids will also get to lend a hand with some animal chores at The Farm. A great session for any families considering starting up their own flocks.
The Meet the Farmer series is a fun way for the whole family to learn about gardening, animal husbandry and sustainable agriculture. Our farmer, Lis Schneider, has been a year-round agriculturalist for over a decade. She works to encourage more young people to fall in love with the earth and outdoors by showing them all the fun and wonder to be found in their own backyards and gardens.
Park in the dirt lot and walk up to the children’s greenhouse (the last one on the right). Guests who have difficulty walking can still access our greenhouse and garden. Just contact us with any questions or special needs.
These events are free but space is limited.
