Our gardening program was developed in accordance with Virginia’s Science and Math SOL guidelines for Pre-K through 3rd Grade and has been honored with “The Golden Trowel Award.” & “National Grow Award.” Our “hands on” approach to learning will help your students better understand their study of plants and animals. Students will be able to plant seeds, see examples of the parts of a plant and discover what plants need to grow. We stress the importance of nature and the benefits that plants have on our environment. The students will get to visit our weather station, worm and bee habitats and see live examples of the life cycles of frogs, birds, & butterflies. The guided program takes approximately 1 hour. Our picnic area is also available for lunch or snacks to make your day complete.

The Pumpkin Patch is the most popular field trip of the year for schools, family groups, scouts, daycare centers, and church organizations. This program lasts approximately 90 minutes. The day begins with a "Tractor Pulled Hay Wagon" filled with straw. The children observe horses grazing, stables, woods, fields, then it is off to the The Pumpkin Patch where the children select their very own pumpkin to take home. We also have a new and improved "Pumpkin Play Area" which includes our "Giant Hay Stack," and expanded petting farm where the children can enjoy meeting our farm animals!
