A WEEKLY ENRICHMENT Program

Farm School

We aim to teach students a strong work ethic as they learn where food comes from and connect classroom studies to real world situations.

Farm School Overview

Blackwood’s Farm School exists 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 importance of regenerative food systems in daily life.

This weekly 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 agroecology and learn the value of preparing wholesome food. They will leave better stewards, excited to make conscientious decisions in all their future pursuits.
