Just for Kids on Saturday

Exploring the Wonders of Nature

New this Summer!

We are excited to offer single day kids adventures on Saturday mornings! These are perfect for kids who want to enjoy the farm but have packed summer schedules. We will spend our mornings harvesting in the garden, crafting with plants or out adventuring along the parkway. Mixed age experiences for campers ages 6-11. Sign up for one or more sessions.

You asked for a fun field trip experience for your kids on Saturdays and we heard you. Parents are encouraged to enjoy a relaxing morning on the farm, listen to live music, meet friends for coffee at Phoebe’s, take a walk or class, shop for produce and plants or drop off their kids and have three hours to themselves on Saturday morning. This can be a good option for siblings, play dates or scout troops. This three hour experience requires pre-registration and parents must sign a waiver.

Regenerating Our Soil

Soil Born Featured in Comstock’s Magazine

Read the Comstock’s Magazine article about regenerative agriculture practices in our area. Soil Born Farm’s shift toward a regenerative management plan is slow and one of continuous learning that strategically introduces new agricultural methods. As the farm reopens to the public—that’s expected late spring or early summer—those practices will have an even stronger presence in the farm’s (urban agriculture educational) curriculum.
