School Programs

 

The Flower Fields® is committed to providing children with quality education that brings agriculture and gardening into the classroom and at The Flower Fields.

The Seed and Bulb Growing Program is designed for preschool through second grade students and has three different plan options. Our Investigative Program is for third through fifth graders. 

Our educational Seed & Bulb Growing Program for preschool through second grade offers an in-class learning experience about the growing process of either a ranunculus bulb or sunflower, hands-on planting and growing, and an optional field trip to The Flower Fields for a guided tour of a working ranunculus farm. Craft, music, composting and wagon rides are included in the trip. Click below to take a closer look at our three different Seed & Bulb Plans.

Our Investigative Program is for third through fifth grade and is an onsite program that combines hands-on time with the flowers and activities to give students a great understanding of plants and flowers. Click here to find out more about the program and to download the application.

School Program General Information

Payment for the Classroom Presentation, Full Program, and wagon rides are due and payable on the date of the Classroom Presentation. Money will not be collected at the field trip, with the exception of general admission for extra assistants, parents and siblings. Please make checks payable to "CB Ranch Enterprises".

Because The Flower Fields is a working ranch with steep hills and dirt pathways, we recommend that you wear hats, sunscreen, sunglasses, comfortable clothes and good walking shoes. You also may want to bring a light jacket or sweater, as the top of the hill can get breezy and cool.

If you choose to participate in all field trip activities provided, the average amount of time to allow for the field trip is approximately three hours (a full morning), not including a picnic. However, you are welcome to stay for as long or as short a period as you like. It is important to arrive at 9:00 a.m., if possible.

Restroom and drinking fountain facilities are located onsite for your convenience.

In the event of rain, The Flower Fields will remain open as long as it is safe for all guests. If your class chooses not to come, or if we are forced to close due to rain, we will be happy to reschedule your field trip.
