Spring Farm Adventures

Oxbow’s Spring Farm Adventure field trips are designed to expose students to the magic of the early growing season. These hands-on adventures open kids’ eyes, ears, noses, and taste buds to the life, big and small, on our kid-friendly vegetable farm. Students even participate in a springtime farm activity: planting seeds! To get more information about our Spring Farm Adventures, you can access our at-a-glance program outline to plan ahead. 

Highlights

  • Meet the inhabitants of our worm bin and learn why they are a farmer’s best friend.
  • Sow seeds and venture through the living tunnel, looking for signs of spring.
  • Sample some early-season herbs and other crops. 
  • Learn what seeds need to grow and plant a seed to take home.

Cost

Large Groups: If your group is larger than 50, follow the step by step instructions on how to register HERE.

Chaperones: We do not charge adults to chaperone along with student groups. If chaperones would like to bring a younger sibling who will NOT be participating in programming (babes in arms or younger toddlers), they may come at no additional charge. If a younger sibling is able to participate in tasting, exploring, and planting a seed to take home, then we ask that they be included in the student head count with payment handled through your child’s teacher or field trip coordinator.
