Kena leads the educational programs at Ollin Farms, with twelve years of experience sharing her passions for farming, food, science, cooking, and the Spanish language through her fun and engaging on-farm 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 and youth summer classes. There is so much to learn from the natural ecosystems of the farm, join us on the journey of discovery.

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

What level of Spanish is needed to be able to particpate in the Spanish sessions?

Spanish themed classes are aimed to build Spanish vocabularly while participating in the farminf activities.  They are appropirate for students currently studying Spanish as well as students with no prior Spanish language experience.  Kena adapts her teaching style to match the kids in each class to ensure a fun learning experience.


What do kids need to bring?

Sun block, water bottle,  extra clothes, tennis shoes, and a healthy lunch.


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 and we can be flexible with ages, please reach out with any questions.
