Join the Urban Farm Home School Program!
The Urban Farm Home School Program (UFHSP) at Zenger Farm offers home schooled students the opportunity to learn about food, farming and nature in a hands-on way. Students come to the farm weekly to explore the natural world from a scientific perspective, work on group projects and hands-on service learning, harvest, cook and eat garden snacks, and create nature-inspired art. They study the importance of healthy food, organic farming practices, wetland conservation, animal care, and environmental stewardship in our urban community.
This is a drop-off program though adults are welcome to volunteer in their child’s class once or twice throughout the session.
