Winter School Program Update

We have two exciting new programs to keep your class connected to Oxbow this winter! 

Classrooms/Homeschool Group/COVID Learning Pods: Invite experiential learning into your virtual classrooms with our new Digital, Investigative, Guided (DIG) Experience. Practice your exploration skills by investigating and caring for our troupe of traveling worms, dissecting a seed, or inspecting flower anatomy, all from the safety of your home and with the guidance of Oxbow’s skilled Farmer Educators!

Classrooms/Larger groups: Enhance your class’s science learning with our new Virtual Farm Adventures! Get a behind-the scenes tour of our kid-friendly organic vegetable farm, with plenty of opportunities to engage with our Farmer-Educators and ask questions!

Registration for Oxbow’s Spring, Summer, and Fall in-person programs are currently closed, but you can still click through below to read program descriptions and learn about our offerings during non-COVID times. 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!
