Let’s GROW with Fable Farm!
We are so proud to introduce our partnership with Fable Farms in Ossining, New York with a hands-on farm education program for kids 7 years and up. Each class is two hours long on Saturday on a beautiful, historic working farm right here in Westchester County. This class runs from May 19 – 6/23 ( 5 sessions)
Full dates of this program are: 5/19, 6/2, 6/9, 6/16, 6/23
Kids 7 years and up.
(If you wish to enroll in less than 8 classes, please contact us at [email protected]; some partial registrations may be allowed). If you register more than one child at a time, you are eligible for a 10% discount from the total. Please enter “sibling010” during the checkout (there is a coupon box on the checkout page).
This weekly 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 spring crops, 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 Saturdays from 10:00 – 12:00. We are also happy to set up a car pool system from White Plains for willing parents. To let us know if you would be interested in transportation from Curious-on-Hudson, White Plains, please e-mail us at [email protected] .
