Winter Farmer in the Classroom

Bring a farmer into your classroom! During the season when outdoor field trips aren’t possible, Oxbow’s farm educators bring the farm to you with one of several interactive lessons. Choose from topics including worms, seeds, pollination, and more! Learn more about Farmer in the Classroom programs

Spring Farm Adventures

Our spring farm 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! Learn more about Farm Adventures.

Summer Farm Adventures

Explore the bounties of the summer season! On our guided summer farm tours, groups will discover the critters that help our plants grow and will dig in with farm skills, harvesting and eating along the way. Oxbow’s Summer Farm Adventures are an excellent supplement to summer camp programs, summer school, and homeschool group lessons. Learn more about Farm Adventures.

Summer Camps

Through week-long camp sessions, Oxbow Summer Camps provide a safe and fun space for campers to express themselves in the outdoors, rain and shine. Camp sessions are full of exploration, games, songs, fresh farm foods, and more as we guide campers through hands-on, inquiry-based activities here in the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley. Learn more about our summer camps here.

Fall Farm Adventures

Our guided Fall Farm Adventures take kids through our fields on a scavenger hunt for the six plant parts—roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits, and seeds. When we find the plant parts, we learn their function, then harvest and eat them! Students tour the Kids’ Farm in small groups with their own farmer educator and each take home a sugar pie pumpkin.
