Overnight Stays

 

Bring your class to Blackwood for an overnight stay. We offer weeklong school programs for youth groups, public, private, homeschool, scout troops, and more. See the farm in action for a week or more, shadow the farmer, and choose customized programming to meet your lesson plan needs. During this experience, students can expect to immerse themselves in life on our farm. They connect with nature, the gardens, and our animals. They discover the source of their food and what it takes to care for the land from which it comes.
