Virtual Field Trips
On the Farm
The Growing Hope Urban Farm provides fun and experiential field trips for youth PreK-12th grade. Each field trip includes a tour of our urban farm, an age appropriate hands-on lesson in nutrition/cooking, and a STEAM based garden activity. Field trips run from 1.5 – 2 hours based on the age of students and can incorporate our adobe pizza oven and/or our smoothie bike.
At the Market
Growing Hope provides interactive field trips at the Depot Town Farmers Market. At the market, students will take a tour, meet local farmers, and learn about local food, seasonality, and the benefit of supporting small scale farmers through fun, hands-on activities. Field trips at the Farmers Market are only offered on Saturdays between 10am – 12pm (when the market is running) and last from 1.5 – 2 hours depending on the age of students.
