FARM TOURS

Farm Tours 2018:

Farm tours will help inspire the inner farmer in all of us. They will introduce youth to key topics within agriculture, and provide a fun-filled activity for parent and child.

To book a private farm tour, please contact us at least 2 WEEKS in advance at info@marylandagriculture.org

2018 Dates TBD

Last year’s Farm tour themes:

  • Composting, Using Resources: Reducing Waste, Recycling, Reusing.
  • Bees, Pollination, and the Plant Life Cycle.
  • Farm Animals: Goats, Sheep, Chickens.

Farm tours are $5/child, and parents are welcome to join.

Bring:

A hat, sunscreen, water, and please come early or late, have lunch or dinner here on the farm at one of our picnic tables.

Stargazing:

What do the stars and agriculture have in common? Astronomy is the oldest science, and using the science of stars even predates formal calendars, so it would seem that Astronomy and Farmers have a relationship that’s literally as old as time! On the New Moon when the sky will be clear, Ray will explain that history, the importance of constellations, and how the planets and stars helped shape our world.

A telescope will be provided, but feel free to bring your own or binoculars.

DATES TO BE DETERMINED

Stargazing is $5/person.

Bring:

Food, drink, and a blanket or a chair.
