Event Description

Event Flyer
Over the three days, teachers will learn about our sustainable agricultural practices in raising crops and animals best suited to our region, focusing on the following questions:
• Where does our food really come from?
• How does what we choose to eat affect our health, the health of the land, the community and
the environment?
• How do we begin to teach children to become thoughtful food consumers?
Activities include:
• In-depth tour of farm operations
• Hands-on seasonal farm chores (e.g., egg collection, sheep pasture rotation, plant seeding,
transplanting, harvesting, greenhouse bed preparation and cleaning)
• Conversations with Stone Barns farmers
• Farm to table lunch (including seasonal harvest, lunch preparation and dining)
• Resources and activities to take back to the classroom
The program is held mostly outside and involves walking and a fair amount of physical activity.
Participants should be prepared for all kinds of weather, and should arrive on time to make the
most of the cool summer mornings.
