Open Farmyard will be back on Thursday afternoons and Saturday mornings for another season in 2020!
Join Land’s Sake educators on the farm for weekly activities including stories, picking and planting in the Education Garden, exploring the chicken coop and more! This is a free, drop-in program for young children and caregivers. Activities are geared for ages 2.5-7, but children of all ages are welcome to participate. Donations welcome. (Open Farmyard is weather-dependent and cancellations will be posted on our social media pages.)
This program runs for the duration of our 20 week CSA shares, from early June to late October.
Check back soon for 2020 dates!
