Kena leads the educational programs at Ollin Farms, with seventeen years of experience sharing her passions for farming, food, science, cooking, and the Spanish language.  Our on-farm education programs are geared to teaching youth about healthy ecosystems through hands-on learning activities around the farm.  From preschool children through university engineering students, we love turning our working farm into an engaging classroom!

Frequently Asked Questions about Youth Summer Classes:

 
What do kids need to bring for farming classes?

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

 

What is your refund policy?
Tuition payments are non-refundable.  Tuition can be transferred to a different class the same season if space is available or can be transferred to a different student.

 

What level of Spanish is needed to be able to participate in the Spanish youth farming classes?

 

Spanish themed classes are aimed to build Spanish vocabulary while participating in farming activities.  They are appropriate 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 for all.

 
What if my kid(s) don't fit the suggested ages for summer class?


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.

Do field trips and classes occur rain or shine? 

 

Yes! As farmers we are familiar with adapting to the weather, and have a variety of learning activities that can occur out of the elements if need be.
