Farm Homeschool Program

Our Farm Homeschool Program is a great way for your homeschooler to enjoy hands-on gardening at our urban educational farm. Whether your little one is accustomed to a gaggle of kids or prefers to hoof it alone, this homeschool enrichment program provides a rich environment for making feathered (and otherwise) friends, all while learning our STEAM curriculum. Our Farm Homeschool Program participants will follow their meals from seed to table. Our outdoor learning center will allow your child to explore STEAM concepts while addressing Nevada K-12 education standards.

Registration is now open!
