In addition to a full Farm Tour, which includes the education garden and time with the farm animals, students will get to spend time gently exploring in nature. This is the perfect opportunity to safely allow children to explore the creek and trails, appreciate the trees, birds, and squirrels, or investigate the wonders that lie beneath a log. This time spent in nature is supported by our experiential outdoor learning methods that inspire curiosity and discovery.
This program lasts approximately 3 hours, from 10 am to 1 pm. Start times can be flexible based on transportation and/or school needs. Students should bring a lunch and plan to pack out their trash.
Please note that our fee structure has changed, starting Fall, 2019.

Hidden Villa does not mandate a specific student/adult ratio, but strongly suggests limiting it to approximately 8 students to one adult, for the purposes of supervision and support, while also allowing for the most students possible to participate. Our low adult- to-child ratio provides a safe and well-supervised visit, while optimizing students' educational opportunities.
Limited scholarship funds are available for schools with 25%+ of their students eligible for the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program. Scholarships are detailed on the registration site. Scholarship information can be found on the registration site and can only apply to programs conducted September - February. Funds run out quickly, so sign up early!
We can accommodate a maximum of 64 students. If you need to exceed 64, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (650) 949-8644 and we will try to accommodate you.
After the opening circle, students will be divided into groups of approximately 10 students.
Hidden Villa is committed to making our EdVenture programs financially accessible to all, as our budget allows.
