SPRING BREAK IS HERE!
Spring Break Camp is here! It's an amazing time on the farm with hands-on learning and play! Campers will indulge in the beauty and magic of Fairview Gardens everyday for a week with our fun and knowledgeable camp staff. This year's Spring Break farm camp will have an emphasis in caring for and maintaining our new flock of baby chicks!

With 13 acres of agricultural land, we'll spend time learning about our food systems and the importance of our environment and world around us.

This year, alongside our traditional farm camp, we will be offering specialty camps focused in cooking, art and science.

The Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview Gardens is committed to teaching our youth about food systems and creating connections between food, agriculture, and community. We give children a hands-on experience centered on the farm with various activities involving our greenhouse operations, composting projects, field work, livestock care and harvesting produce. We focus on integrating Next Generation Science Standards in tangible and approachable ways. From September through May, we work with local schools to bring classes to the farm to experience what it takes to grow what they eat and to form healthy relationships to their food.
PARENTS' NIGHT OUT
Drop your children off at the farm and get sometime for yourself. Parents' night out is designed to give your kids a fun experience on the farm under the stars while you spend quality time with yourself or with others. We provide dinner, farm games and activities and end the evening watching an outdoor movie together. Send your child with a water bottle and something cozy to wear and we’ll do the rest!
CHECK BACK SOON. MORE INFO TO COME.
