This is the best field trip I have ever been on with any of my children, all of whom are much older now! This is so important for the kids to learn!
Join us on a local farm to explore how roots, leaves, stems, fruits and flowers help a plant survive, experience the joy of pulling a carrot out of the ground, and discover how soil nourishes plants and people. This is your chance to meet the farmers that grow food for the Gallatin Valley, participate in farm jobs like planting, harvesting, and feeding animals, learn how food gets from the farm to your plate and taste farm-fresh food!
GVF2S assists schools in creating successful farm field trip experiences. To expand on the concepts learned at the farm, GVF2S teaches pre- and post-lessons in the classroom. These lessons introduce and reinforce standard-based learning outcomes selected for each particular age group. Contact us if you would like more information on how we can help create a farm field trip experience for your school.
