Join Farmer Lis to learn some of the sillier facts about chickens. We’ll spend some time inside our “Cluckingham Palace” chicken coop meeting the hens and help out with some chicken-caring chores.

Kids will also get to lend a hand with some animal chores at The Farm.

Learn about how seeds turn into the plants on our plates and get excited about growing our own food. Kids will get a chance to help plant our early spring vegetables, from radishes and beets to peas and carrots.
Learn about the different options for backyard composting setups, from advanced equipment to the simple method of burying scraps in unused garden spots to bulk up your soil microbiome for next season. You’ll also get a tour of the new Eastman’s Corner composting unit.
See who’s hatched and who’s getting ready to break free from their shells. Farmer Lis will answer questions about caring for baby chicks while you help prepare their new home. You’ll learn how to set up feeders and waterers, and prepare bedding in the temporary crate.
