Farm Field Trips
Children come away from farm field trips forever connected to local food and farms. Growing Minds staff members support 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!
