Home School Programs at the Farm with Melanie

A Home-school enrichment program for 5-12 yr-olds.

This is a program that provides children with a weekly opportunity to be with and work with the incredible and simple wisdom of nature.

This weekly meeting will give children the ability to have an ongoing relationship to the farm's animals and plants through all seasonal changes.

Each day we will begin with a circle, work with the animals and plants and make our lunch from food harvested together. Eating together from farm to table deepens our connection to each other and the food we eat.

Frog Belly Farm's vision is to help everybody experience the bond between people, food and nature and this program provides the opportunity for the children to learn about and be nourished by these connections.

Daily Rhythm:

9:30-10:00 morning circle- checking in with each other and the farm

10:00-10:30 morning snack

10:30-11:30 Farm chores

11:30-12:00 harvesting ingredients for lunch

12:00-1:00 Eating lunch

1:00-3:00 Farm fun, crafts and spending time with the animals

3:00-3:30 Story time, afternoon snack and closing circle

Group size:

This group will be small- only 8 children - I have found this size enables us to make deeper connections to the animals, plants and each other.

Cost for the 2013-2014 school year:

$1400 for 29 Farm days fall through spring
