Thank you for your interest in a tour of the farm. Depending on the age and interests of the group, we offer several opportunities to explore Fairview Gardens and learn more about who we are.
The Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview Gardens is committed to teaching our youth about food systems and creating connections between food, agriculture, and community. We give children a hands-on experience centered on the farm with various activities involving our greenhouse operations, composting projects, field work, livestock care and harvesting produce. We focus on integrating Next Generation Science Standards in tangible and approachable ways. From September through May, we work with local schools to bring classes to the farm to experience what it takes to grow what they eat and to form healthy relationships to their food.
