We live in a time that makes bonding and mentorship between elders and youth ever more rare. Our goal is to provide a space were children can work on applied stem projects on the farm, as they learn skills such as observation, collection, scientific method and creative processes of problem solving, all under the loving care and mentorship of their Uncle.
The day begins with farm chores, including feeding and watering the poultry, bunnies, sheep, goats, cows, pigs and alpacas. In the past, our science classes have focused on learning skills such as observation, collection, scientific method and creative processes of problem solving.
Homework space and time available. Middle Schoolers will choose from a handful of different farm projects to complete over the course of a few weeks. Projects include but are not limited to creating a stage for performances on the farm, creating trails with QR codes for people to scan and listen to facts or music along the trail, building animal shelters or play centers for Pickin’s Playground.
