Growing minds at the Farm - FarmLab

In the cold of winter, it seemed like all we talked about was the kitchen and the office. Well, that’s about to change, because we’re over the moon about the farm’s latest brilliant idea– CCG’s Farmlab. Designed for elementary students all the way up to high school students, this interactive, half online and half experiential program is made up of farm relevant topics that students are really interested in, taught in a STEM supportive environment. It’s our MVP this season, and we can’t wait to give it to participants in our upcoming field trips. The FarmLab manual is available as a printed manual and as an online resource. Teachers have the capability to incorporate FarmLab lessons into their curriculum and then reinforce those concepts on the Farm during field trips and field studies! The topics students will dive into include: soil health, insects and their benefits, just food systems, and managing resources integrated. This program has us all itching to go back to school!

Stay tuned, and get involved with the CCG Farm on Facebook or right here, on the CCG blog. Interested in FarmLab? Take a peek here or get in touch here.
