Homeschool on the Farm

Stony Kill Foundation and Common Ground Farm are teaming up for a special Homeschool on the Farm session on Thursday, December 3. In the morning, join Stony Kill’s educator and explore the farm and trees in winter. Warm up with pine needle tea, make a mini evergreen swag and trim a tree for wildlife as we learn about our feathered friends that stay in the Hudson Valley during the cold winter months. In the afternoon, Common Ground’s educator will lead participants in a printmaking holiday card workshop learning collagraph printing techniques and wreath-making, using found natural materials. Families can choose to do both or one or the other.

Each two hour program (morning or afternoon) is $25 per session for the first child and $10 for each additional child.

Morning programs will take place from 10am to noon with Stony Kill Foundation at the Learning Center. Register here for Stony Kill’s morning session.

Afternoon programs will take place from 1 to 3 pm with Common Ground. To register for Common Ground’s program visit Register here for Common Ground Farm’s afternoon session.

All participants must bring a mask. Limit to each workshop is 10 families. Recommended ages 6-12. Parents are expected to stay on-site. Workshops are subject to cancellations if inclement weather is predicted. All participants must register in advance.
