Bringing Learning to Life
Looking for a fun, hands-on field trip that will help your students connect with food, the land, and each other? Want an out-of-classroom experience designed to support the new BC Curriculum? We would love to welcome your class or youth group to visit our farms!
You don’t have to travel far to give your students a farm experience. Situated at Vancouver Technical and David Thompson secondary schools, our schoolyard farms are a short walk from many elementary schools and community centers. All field trips are 2 hours long and include a farm work experience, as well as a tasting of salad or other veggies
$150 for up to 25 youth; $6 for each additional youth.
We can host up to 30 youth on either of our farm sites. If you have a larger group, consider booking both a morning and an afternoon session, and have the whole group enjoy lunch together!
We require 1 teacher/chaperone for every 6 grade K-3 students, 8 grade 4-5 students, 10 grade 6-7 students, and 12 grade 8-12 students. Required adults are included in the group coast; additional adults will be charged at the student rate. If your group needs more adult assistance, please let us know on the registration form.
Farm field trips are available from April through October. We are now scheduling field trips for spring and summer 2019.
Morning spaces are filling fast, especially in May and June. Book now for the best availability!
We’d love to have your camp, summer school group, or day care visit the farms this summer! The weeks of July 8th, July 22nd, August 6 (afternoons only) and August 12th are available for summer field trips. Book your summer program before May 31st.
