Farm Field Trips

Farm field trip

Growing Minds supports farmers and teachers who want to make farm field trips possible for students. Through our annual mini-grants, workshops, and trainings, teachers and farmers get the resources they need to create lasting, hands-on learning experiences.

Need help getting started? The following resources include listings of family-friendly farms open to visitors and school groups, activities tailored for on-farm learning, and tips for successful farm field trips. Don’t feel left out, parents. Educational farm visits can happen any weekend and during school breaks; these resources are for you, too!
