The Columbia Street Farm is a classroom where children and youth roll up their sleeves, learn about plants, and explore where their food comes from. We host groups in the spring, summer, and fall from local schools, summer camps, and fellow teen programs. Sessions include a farm tour, plant exploration, service-learning activities, and farm-fresh snacks!
Our maximum capacity for school groups is 30 students, not including chaperones. The fee for each visit is $250. Scheduling priority is given to schools in and around Red Hook.
We are not currently scheduling visits!
Big changes are coming to our school workshop program, including revamped curriculum and a redesigned area of the farm dedicated to education. For 2019, we will not have open slots for school visits as we make and pilot these changes. Thank you for your interest in bringing children to the farm and we hope to reconnect with you in 2020!
