Farm-Based Learning

School Visits

The farms are classrooms where children and youth roll up their sleeves, learn about plants and explore where their food comes from. We host groups in the spring, summer and fall from local schools, summer camps and fellow teen programs. Sessions include a farm tour, plant exploration, service-learning activities, and farm-fresh snacks!

Our maximum capacity for school groups is 30 students, not including chaperones. The fee is a sliding scale. To add your name to our school workshop only email list, please send your name, school, and email address to farms@rhicenter.org with the subject “FBL email list.”

In light of the developing COVID-19 situation, all school visits to the farms are on hold indefinitely. Thank you for your interest in bringing children to the farms and we hope to see you soon!
