Skills of an Older Time— with a New Twist

We believe in engaging hands, large and small, in activities that bring them closer to the earth, preserve traditions, and bring joy. We create active food citizens that grow the vitality of residents and the surrounding area as a whole.


Our Workshops

We believe in the power of working together with our hands to try and learn something new. Through a diverse set of education programs, we create opportunities to gain new experiences, tools, and skills all while making connections within the world around us.

These 1.5–2 hours of fun on the farm include hands-on exploration stations that are tied to curriculum standards for Tennessee and are chosen based on seasonal availability and curricular focus. Please talk with us about your themes and dreams for field trip exploration stations when you schedule.
