“We had a lovely class this morning about seed dispersal and it was incredibly full of all the right things... a wide range of students’ ages and abilities, a wide range of activities and learning, and so much less of lecturing and instruction. It was beautifully thought out and intentional, directing the learner to explore and discover, in nature, through STEM, and all farm-based including sheep visits and goat petting... I’m so glad I could bring my four this morning to observe, collect, adventure, and create!”

opics covered include: Sugar maple identification; The role of sap for trees; How to tap a tree safely; How sap is turned into maple syrup.

MAY | Beginning Birding
The farm is a great place to make bird observations due to our proximity to ponds and rivers, open fields, and forested areas. Join Jim on a hike across the Remick farmstead to learn about the many wild birds on the property! Migrating birds should have made it back to New Hampshire, so participants will: 
learn how to use binoculars; search for, and make observations about, our flying friends.


JUNE | Goats and Kids
