Stony Kill Foundation and Common Ground Farm are teaming up for Homeschool on the Farm – Winter sessions. In the morning, join Stony Kill’s educators as we explore the forest floor, learn how to track animals in the wild and get ready for spring with our newly born lambs. In the afternoon, Common Ground’s educator will lead participants in activities where we learn about animal and tree adaptations, seeds and germination, and getting the farm ready for spring, while we make food and art that connects to our lessons and the seasons.
Each one hour program (morning or afternoon) is $15 per session for the first child and $5 for each additional child or $80 for the first child for the (morning OR afternoon) series and $30 for each additional child.
