Youth Education

Exploring the connections between healthy land and healthy people

Zenger Farm’s experiential and science-based programs teach youth and adults the importance of food, farming, wetland conservation and environmental stewardship. Participants learn that healthy food comes from healthy soil. Zenger Farm provides opportunities for community members to get their hands dirty and learn where their food comes from!

Farm Camps

Farm Camps offer an unforgettable opportunity to explore, eat, and play in our beautiful urban educational farm and wetland throughout the seasons. We offer Spring Break, Summer, and Winter Camps. Campers tend to vegetables and farm animals, harvest produce, craft with magical plants, participate in farm scavenger hunts, and develop chef skills during cooking challenges.

Field Trips

Through our Field Trip programs students learn about sustainable farming practices, healthy soils, beneficial insects, and wetland ecology. By participating in Service Learning projects, they have the opportunity to be farmers and stewards of the land.
