Kena leads the educational programs at Ollin Farms, with over ten years of experience sharing her passions for farming, food, science, cooking, and the Spanish language through her fun and engaging classes. Her teaching philosophy is that kids learn best when they are physically active and in a safe environment, and this focus on interactive and fun learning permeates our curriculum for school field trips, youth summer classes, and partnerships with the City of Longmont and local school districts.  There is so much to learn from the natural ecosystems on the farm, come join us on the journey of discovery.

Yes, we need to leave a better planet for our children,
but equally important is to leave better people for our planet.

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Are the classes the same from year to year?
We have kids that have been returning every summer; we change some things or introduce new subjects each year. Just like the farm, the farm classes are always adapting, and each year we add new themes and activities.


What do kids need to bring?

Sun block, water bottle,  extra clothes, tennis shoes, lunch and a snack for the first three days (full-day groups only). 


What if my kid(s) don't fit the suggested ages?
We suggest ages based on our experience with the activities involved and the goal to get all the kids working together. That being said, just like the farm itself, these classes build teamwork between different ages and skill levels.
