At Black Creek Community Farm, we are committed to providing meaningful learning experiences to assist teachers and families seeking to enrich their children’s learning.
It is our goal to provide an inquiry based curriculum that…
- Nurtures self-esteem and confidence by empowering children to take ownership of their learning
- Fosters environmental stewardship through experiential learning
- Supports a healthy and active lifestyle
