We offer a variety of ninety-minute educational farm workshops ($10 per student) for scouting groups K-12, at our Fresh Roots Farm. For Boy Scouts, we offer the Sustainability Badge Workshop where they will learn about topics such as sustainable farming, composting, water conservation, species decline and more. For Girl Scouts, we offer the “Sow What? Senior Badge Workshop” that can be adapted for any scouting level. In this workshop, scouts will learn about growing food organically and sustainably as well as the importance of sourcing ingredients from your local community vs the globalized and industrial food systems who’s food stocks most of our supermarkets. Both the Girl and Boy Scout programs will allow students to see a farm in action while also obtaining a hands-on experiential education. In addition to these programs, we also offer “ A Day at the Farm” which provides students with an introduction to sustainable farming while giving them hands-on farming experience. During this program, they will learn about plant science, honey bees, composting, and the importance of supporting local and sustainable grown agriculture. Finally, we run a program called “What’s the Buzz” where students will learn about the benefits of bees in the local and regional food system as well as the ecosystem. Participants will also observe a live beehive with the chance to taste raw honey, look at honeycombs with live bees, and learn about pollination and bee anatomy. NOTE: All programs run rain or shine beside “What’s the Buzz.”
