Farm School

Blackwood’s Farm School exists to teach students a strong work ethic as they learn where food comes from while connecting classroom studies to real-world situations.

Farm School Overview

Blackwood’s Farm School is a weekly experiential program designed to provide students with an in-depth, hands-on look into how a 21st-century farm operates. Students will learn about the cycles of nature and the value of preparing wholesome food. They will leave better stewards of the earth, excited to make conscientious decisions in all their future pursuits. Lessons will incorporate science, writing, strategic planning, carpentry, livestock management, and culinary arts.
