Let’s GROW with Fable Farm!
Single class enrollment now available.
NEW this fall, we are so proud to introduce our partnership with Fable Farms in Ossining, New York with a hands-on farm education program for kids 9 years and up. Each class is two hours long on Sundays on a beautiful, historic working farm right here in Westchester County. This class runs from October 15 – December 10.
Full dates of this program are: 10/15, 10/22, 10/19, 11/5, 11/12, 11/19, 12/3, 12/10 (if you wish to enroll in less than 8 classes, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org; some partial registrations may be allowed).
This weekly Sunday class empowers children with food and farm education and is a perfect delight for kids who want to get their hands dirty learning the who/what/how of farming on a real working organic farm. A Curious-on-Hudson farm educator (Rich Driscoll) will work with this class at Fable Farms and each week kids will have the opportunity to talk and learn directly from the farmers about what’s happening on the farm. Imagine your kids helping to run a working farm and contributing to the working side of a CSA program.
Our Curious Farmers will lend their hands in doing actual farm chores learning about seasonal farming, sustainability, and environmental stewardship. Students will plant a field of cold-weather crop (which they should be able to harvest during the term of this class); learn about hydroponic growing, create trays of micro-greens, help out with the CSA and learn how the farm operates to create a sustainable growing environment for the local community. Fable Farm and Curious-on-Hudson created this program as a means to teach children about farm-to-table nutrition and the story of their food.
Classes take place on Sundays from 10:00 – 12:00. Transportation may be provided for an additional fee, depending upon enrollment. We are also happy to set up a car pool system for willing parents. To let us know if you would be interested in transportation from Curious-on-Hudson, Dobbs Ferry, please e-mail us at email@example.com . Depending on the number of people interested in transportation service, we will hire a transportation service for this class.
