THERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE AT BLACKWOOD!

School and Organization Visits

From September to April, we offer age-appropriate, multidisciplinary programs for students from 1st through 12th grade*. Students learn about agriculture firsthand on a working farm, including everything from food cycles to soil science.

We welcome visits from clubs, organizations, and corporations, too!

Field Trips Overview

Our programs:

• Introduce students to the concept of food systems.

• Teach students how food is grown, what makes a system sustainable, and the value of a healthy diet filled with locally grown meat and produce.

• Show students that it is possible – and advantageous – to grow food that doesn’t need chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial inputs.

Field trips are optionally TEKS relevant and geared toward your subject and larger curriculum. Whether you’re part of a girl scout troop, home school group or a public school, we can accommodate your pedagogy.
