Spark students’ interests in agriculture and ecology with investigations centered around our livestock, in our gardens, along our shoreline, and among the trees of our forests. Each Farm School is a unique opportunity to engage academic content through hands-on experiences at Wolfe’s Neck Farm. Our 626-acre outdoor classroom spans our working farm, pastures, forests, educational gardens, and miles of rocky shoreline.
AREAS OF STUDY
Select the focus that will frame your students’ investigations throughout Farm School:
Agricultural Sciences Examine the integration of biology, physical science, economics, and social sciences that coalesce in the study of agriculture.
Food Systems Investigate the multidisciplinary intersections that shape our contemporary food systems.
Local Ecology Explore the interconnected communities and relationships within the diverse ecosystems across our farm.
Our programs change with the season and what is happening on the farm. Lambing, sowing seeds, and spring’s reawakening frame explorations from April – June. Fall programs are built around the harvest and bringing the growing season to an end from September – November.
