VIRTUAL FARM ADVENTURES

Perfect for classrooms or larger groups, Oxbow’s Virtual Farm Adventures connect you and your learning community to the seasonal changes on an organic vegetable farm, wherever you are! Virtual Farm Adventures are for everyone, including schools, families, homeschool groups, and beyond. Step into Oxbow’s world and learn about our organic farming practices, Snoqualmie Valley ecology, and more about the plants that humans (and other critters!) eat. The program can be adapted for all ages and customized to fit remote learning themes. |  Learn more and register

 

Registration for Oxbow’s Spring, Summer, and Fall in-person programs is currently closed, but you can still click through below to read program descriptions and learn about our offerings during non-COVID times. Look for our popular Family Farm Adventures returning in Spring, 2021. We can’t wait to host classrooms of all sizes on the farm again in the future, and will update this space just as soon as we’re able to – in the meantime, stay safe and healthy!
