Friendship Coveys (for K-6th graders)


In addition to our traditional explorations through the education garden, animal farm and wilderness areas, our instructors will design intentional time for Social Emotional Learning each week (SEL).  
Social Emotional Learning 
We know our children and youth have experienced unprecedented levels of anxiety and isolation over the past 18 months and we are excited to create a space in which children can learn how to be better friends to themselves, others, the community and the environment!  With our caring instructor's guidance, students will practice understanding and managing emotions, showing respect and empathy for others, and establishing and maintaining positive relationships.  
Our Organic Garden

Using our Educational Garden as our learning laboratory, we will explore the world of our cultivated plants and the friends and foes that live with them. What is edible in the garden? What serves another purpose? What does it take to start a garden of your own? Find out this and so much more.

Farm Animals

What does it mean to be a working farm? How we work to create happy and healthy lives for our farm animals who give us so much in return, and what it really takes to raise farm animals. Bonus: What do the words vegetarian, pescatarian, or vegan mean? Why do people make choices like those?


Welcome to the endlessly fascinating world of nature. Join us as we explore a variety of natural phenomena that bring the outdoors to your class or home, and as we consider our own part in the natural cycles around us.
