After School Programs
Fairview Garden’s after school program begins each year in September. After school kids will be able to come and connect with the food they eat on a weekly basis.
Home School Programs
Our home school program is an exciting opportunity for local home schoolers to develop a relationship with our land as they learn about farming, food connection and the natural world.
Each summer, our farm turns into an exploratory classroom filled with young farmers ready to learn and play. Our trained mentors fill the camps with real farm work such as harvesting vegetables, gathering eggs from the chickens, grooming the goats and tending the fields. Our curious campers also love climbing the trees, doing creative art projects and playing games revolving around farming and nature connection. We offer camps for ages 4-10, from June to August.
