Farm Naturalists will dive deeper into life on the farm, from plants and cycles to the intricate relationships between the farm fields and the land beyond it. Students’ curiosity drives these classes and will involve garden projects, nature journaling, developing experiments, playing games, and asking questions as we seek answers. Core content for each class will be interdisciplinary and based on Next Generation Science Standards practices alongside arts, creative writing, cooking, and exploration. Farm Naturalists will explore and experience Cedar Circle Farm through the lens of Nature Narratives. Observe and get to know the space, seek lessons to learn from our surroundings through a place-based curriculum, and create stories based on the various characters we encounter. Through this imaginative process, Farm Naturalists will better understand the relationships among living things, including how we fit into our ecosystem. Consider ways to design farming practices to cooperate with or imitate natural systems. Investigate various topics such as biomimicry, seed saving, nutrition, medicinal and functional plant uses, seasonal cycles, and stewardship. We strive to make education programs accessible to all families. If homeschool tuition is cost-prohibitive for your family, please get in touch. Sliding scales or payment plans are available.
