Seed to Table Farm will host free fall field trips in the afternoons for youth in second through fifth grades.

Starting Tuesday, September 22, people can sign up for free field trips from 1 to 4 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday. Seed to Table is committed to ensuring students get their hands in the dirt and have opportunities for experiential learning during these difficult times.

The fall field trips offer exploration opportunities with the safety of the community as a top priority.

“We are excited to host small groups (no more than seven) of students for experiential field trips this fall, free of charge!” said Seed To Table Director Audrey Tehan.

Seed to Table Farm is a place students can play and let their imagination go wild. Exploration and learning on Seed to Table farm allows students to connect with nutrition, science, and art through farm-based activities.

“Seed to Table educators are here to keep kids safe, help kids create positive relations with nutritious foods, and to foster experiential education. Our field trips are filled with nature exploration, creative play, and a whole lot of fun! Come learn about our native pollinators, plant life cycles, dig for worms, munch on a delicious garden snack, and so much more,” Tehan said. “A lot of hard work and brainstorming has gone into this program, with the safety of students at the center of the discussions. After watching great examples of other organizations carrying out successful and safe field trips in our area, we know we can help keep kids’ hands in the earth, getting experiential education while also keeping social distance.”
