Other possible activities for your group include plant propagation, farm animal care, composting, organic pest control, direct to consumer business models, as well as an exploration of how and why things are grown organically. We welcome input from teachers on how to integrate field trip activities with their students’ curricula, and so will gladly customize your field trip to suit your needs.
Duration and Group Size: Field trips are typically 3 hours in length and your group is invited to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at the farm following the event. If you are interested in experiencing the delight of eating seasonal and local food, please let us know so we can help you plan and source your picnic menu. We have found that we are best prepared to offer a rich and focused experience to single class groups; however larger groups and trips of longer duration (even camp-outs) can be accommodated by special arrangement.
Scheduling and Cost: Live Earth Farm offers field trips to schools and other groups from April through October (maximum of 36 students/children in any one group please). Please consult the Events Calendar for available dates. We schedule only two field trips per week and the schedule fills up quickly, so if you would like to set one up, contact us early in the season for the best availability. Cost is $10 per student, and our commitment to community outreach allows for reduced rates to a limited number of groups that could not otherwise attend. We will also gladly accept more generous contributions that will go to maintaining this program for future visitors.
See calendar to begin: check for possible available field trip dates (day that does not already have a program listed), then email our Education Programs Coordinator, Hayley: firstname.lastname@example.org, 831-728-2032.
