Every day we witness the positive impacts of farm-based learning on kids, whether they spend 90-minutes in a workshop or are with us every day after school. Kids show a greater willingness to try new things: taste a leaf of lettuce, hold a wiggly worm, put their hands in the soil. Unexpected moments, like discovering a cocoon or a freshly laid egg, lead to sudden insights and connections. Kids eat more vegetables, increase endurance, lose excess weight, and gain a more complete view of health and wellness. Fears, of bees and dirt and new foods, are overcome. Comfort with and respect for nature inspires kids to become stewards of their communities.
