Blackwood Farm School
Blackwood Farm School is an excellent complement to all pedagogy. Our goal is to teach students a strong work ethic as they learn where food comes from, and connect classroom studies to real world situations. They will leave empowered to utilize their new skills to continue modeling the indispensable role of restorative, resilient food systems in daily life.
This once-monthly, experiential program is designed to provide students with an in-depth, hands-on look into how a 21st century farm operates. In a day, students will live the full cycle of basic agro-ecology and learn the value of preparing wholesome food. They will leave better stewards, excited to make conscientious decisions in all their future pursuits.
Sessions run seasonally. Contact us for scholarship information!
