Our Giving Garden offers a wonderful opportunity for the students to focus on others less fortunate then themselves and contribute to helping those in need. Depending on the season – students can plant or weed and harvest – all with the focus of serving others.
Looking for an alternative now that Whittamore”s Farm is closed? A diversity of learning opportunities present in the outdoors can be found on our farm. Our school tour programs include a mix of inquiry based activities that are adapted to your children’s age and comprehension level.
We emphasize learning through doing and we’ll keep them as busy as bees.

Rain and Bad Weather
Most of our tour activities are outdoors and take place regardless of the weather. We adjust our activities in the event of bad weather and have some indoor and sheltered areas for lunch and activities.
In all seasons, our farm is usually cooler and windier due to the open fields and lack of pavement. Please have your students dress appropriately for the weather.
