2 Part Field Trip - In School & On the Farm

In late winter or early spring, HeartBeet Farms comes to your school and teaches students about how to grow organic vegetables. We plant seeds with the students in their classroom and teach them how to care for their seeds.  In late spring, students bring their seedlings to the farm. After touring the farm, students get to plant their seedlings in a special area of the farm.  Students can visit the farm during the summer and monitor the progress of their produce.
