Year-Round Outdoor Education

The LEAFF Program

Leading Empowered Action on Farm and Forest



Nature is our teacher as we travel through each season with hands-on lessons in the farm's woods, creeks, fields, orchard, and gardens Seasonal curriculum, students' questions, STEM challenges, care of animals and farm projects drive the learning. Curious,motivated learners make a deeper connection to a place and community. Skills and understanding are gained and special friendships are made along the way.
Winter helps us to appreciate the adaptions of animals and plants that help them to thrive. We can more easily see the land and trees in the beautiful and spare landscape. Tapping maple trees, finding habitats, learning about life cycles and the impact of a little bit more sunlight in every one of our day's will bring us into the spirit of this special season.
Our adventure cottage gives us a place to keep our things, to gather our collections, and to find resources and books.
Typical lessons and activities include:
Exploratory hikes
Games
Learning outdoor skills
Animal care
Finding a farmer
Farm projects
Fresh food growing and tasting
