Youth Farming Classes with Kena
 

As our neighboring communities grow,  the chance for children to experience the rich farming history of this region becomes more difficult.  Ollin Farms is dedicated to preserving those traditions and Kena will again be offering bilingual summer classes to give youth the opportunity to experience farm life first hand.  This is a great opportunity to  have a fun time learning about where our food comes from and to find out what it's like to be part of a thriving  family farm.

Ollin Farms has developed a unique class program that condenses an entire growing season into one fun week.  From seeding to nurturing to harvesting, kids participate in the full cycle of raising  healthy food.  Students also learn basics of raising livestock and are responsible for the daily feeding of the sheep and chickens and collecting eggs.  The classes are also a way to celebrate summertime on the farm, exploring down by the creek, playing games, craft-making, and expending all that youthful energy in a safe and fun environment.

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 container,  extra clothes,  tennis shoes,  lunch and a snack for the first three days (full-day groups only). The last day of the summer camp Chef Dale comes to cook with the kids.

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.
