At Black Creek Community Farm, we tailor your trip to your class. You can create your own field trip by mixing and matching programs from any of our categories or you can let us do the planning for you with your student’s interests & curriculum links in mind.
Little Farmers – This program is all about the senses, touch, taste, see, & hear all the amazing things at the farm. Explore the spiral garden while you smell the herbs growing, visit & feed the chickens & ducks. Take a walk through the forest listening to all the animals around us and looking at the tracks left behind on the ground.
ELEMENTARY & MIDDLE SCHOOL (K-8)
Animals & Critters – All of these programs have a focus on animals & critters, their roles, and their importance to the earth, to humans & to each other.
Locally Grown – All of these programs have a tasting component & a food focus. Whether it be preparing a healthy & delicious snack or meal, or going on a tasting tour around the farm, students will learn about the importance of eating locally.
Plants & Soil – Learn all about plants & soil through these hands-on programs that will teach students what plants need to survive, the components of soil and get their hands dirty while digging in to the children’s garden.
Outdoor Survivalist – Learn what it takes to survive in the wilderness, track animals in the forest, learn how to make a fire & build a shelter, and identify wild edible weeds.
HIGH SCHOOL & COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY
Farmer for a Day – Experience what it takes to be a farmer & learn about the importance of our urban farm. This program is a hands-on, experiential learning experience for students. Learning takes place while digging in and working alongside farm staff.
