Programmatic Overview (relating to position)
Our after school programs are designed to excite students ages 7-12 to learn more
about the outside world and feel comfortable on the farm. Each day we embark on
a project teaching children about the life on the farm and in the forests. During all
of our activities: taking care of our rabbits and chickens, planting and eating in our
garden, and taking nature walks, we urge children to use their curiosity to learn
about habitats and ecosystems.
Farm 2 School
Farm 2 School enhances classroom curriculum by engaging students on the farm
with experiential and hands-on activities in a multitude of subjects ranging from
biology to art. Land’s Sake educators lead groups of students from grades K-5th on
field trips 1 hour in length. Each group visiting is divided into smaller groups of 10
students for a more meaningful and engaging experience.

Education Garden for exploration and project-based learning opportunities. This
