Facility:The Educational Farm at Joppa Hill
Description:Interactive, hands-on educational farm tours appropriate for all age levels, including adults. Each tour is about 1 hour in length, and content depends on age and interest level of those attending. Children learn how the dirt beneath their feet turns into yummy things like corn on the cob and even ice cream! They discuss what soil is and why it is important. Then it's on to the vegetable garden to touch and taste and smell different plants, learn about gardening with nature, depending on the season your group visits. Kids are encouraged to touch the animals and ask lots of questions. Depending on the time of year, groups may get a chance to walk a goat, hold a hen, maybe even brush a pony or a donkey! A great opportunity for children to make the connection between healthy soil, healthy plants, healthy animals, and healthy people!
