Interested in MORE inspired Oxbow Education? Sign up for the Pumpkin Package and get a deal!

The Pumpkin Package is a three-part series that allows your class to discover how Oxbow changes throughout the seasons, starting with a fall field trip.

The program unfolds over the course of a school year. It begins with a fall visit to the farm, followed by a winter farmer visit to your school, and ends with a return visit to Oxbow in the springtime. The three progressive lessons help students understand how nature’s cycles mimic the changing seasons, and how people are connected to the earth through the food that we eat.

Here’s the deal: Fall field trip + winter farmer visit = 50% off your spring field trip. (Too late for the Pumpkin Package? No problem, the same deal will be available next year too).

SCHOLARSHIPS: If field trip costs pose a hardship, please contact us at education@oxbow.org for scholarship information.
