Wee Ones & Family Farm Day 10:30-12, 1st Friday March-October
The Wee Ones program provides a place and time to experience nature, to smell, see, taste, touch, and hear all this organic farm and its wild spaces has to offer. In this way we will set the stage for our children to develop their own healthy relationships with nature and food.
“While on maternity leave I took advantage of a few great resources in Santa Cruz for new mothers and I found that spending time with other moms of young ones was invaluable. So upon my return to the farm I decided to combine my old passion for farm education with my new passion of parenting. On the first Friday of every month at 10:30am, I invite mothers, fathers, grandparents or caretakers of any kind to bring your babe in arms out to this organic farm. We will spend an hour and a half exploring the farms many treasures.”
Activities are seasonal and may include:
- Feeding the chickens
- Watching and petting the goats and kids
- Sniffing flowers and herbs
- Picking ripe fruits and vegetables
- Exploring the education or permaculture gardens
- Singing farm songs
- Reading farm books
