Composting Program

Our composting program teaches students the principles of recycling, using worms as the “world’s greatest recycler.” Each composting session is taught by a Master Composter. Worms are a fun way for kids to learn about recycling and become more aware of the environment.

Art Program

Students will create a special “hands-on” art project to take home.

Music Program

Students will enjoy singing songs like “Dirt Made my Lunch” and “Bees Have Power” that both teach and entertain.

Antique Tractor Wagon Rides

Students will enjoy a ride on an open-air wagon pulled by an antique tractor.

After Program Activities

Bring lunches in a large box labeled with school name, and students can enjoy their lunch in our picnic area.
