Farm Discovery Program
Become a Guide in the Farm Discovery Program

Due to COVID-19, our in-person Farm Discovery trainings have been cancelled for the 2020 season. Please check out our mail-order Farm Discovery Kits for at-home learning and exploration!

The Farm Discovery Program is a free educational program for all ages. Farm Discovery Guides learn all about the farm and surrounding boreal forest and then share what they’ve learned with school aged children on farm field trips and with the public at community events.

Who are Farm Discovery Guides? Anyone interested in learning more about the farm and forest and sharing with others is welcome! Youth and senior citizens are encouraged to become guides. Youth aged 6-12 should be accompanied by a parent.

When you sign up to become a guide in the Farm Discovery Program, you are eligible to participate in all Farm Discovery Training topics. Trainings are designed to provide guides with skills and information in a way which prepares them to share what they’ve learned with others.

Trainings will be offered on a regular schedule from April through August.


At-Home Farm Discovery Kits

Due to the COVID-19 emergency, we are unable to hold in-person Farm Discovery workshops for the foreseeable future. So, we've created NEW Farm Discovery Kits for at-home exploration & learning!! Each kit will be based around a different Farm Discovery topic and include:

• a Farm Discovery Book to start your journey
• a Craft to make as a family
• a Game to heighten your senses
• an Outdoor Activity to inspire new discoveries
• a Recipe to test your cooking skills
• a Challenge to learn something new
