Farm & Wilderness Guide

Description

Farm & Wilderness Guides are needed in our Environmental Education Program to lead 2nd through 6th grade classes during their field trip to Hidden Villa. Guides help students experience our organic garden through tasting fresh fruits and veggies, meeting farm animals face to face, and exploring the natural world on a short wilderness hike. These programs range from 3 - 5 hours, and group size is limited to approximately 8 children per guide.
