Our Homeschool on the Farm program is organized in partnership with Common Ground Farm. Stony Kill Foundation runs the morning sessions and Common Ground Farm runs the afternoon sessions. In the morning, join Stony Kill Foundation for activities like tracking monarchs, spore printing, and meeting our heritage breed livestock. In the afternoon, join Common Ground’s educators for sessions leading participants in activities like saving seeds, field science, and exploring heirloom vegetables.
Morning and afternoon sessions are each 2 hours long. Morning programs will take place from 10 am to 12 pm with Stony Kill Foundation. Afternoon programs will take place from 1 to 3 pm with Common Ground.
Morning Series Program Fee: $225 for the full ten weeks for the first child and $90 additional for each additional child.
This program is designed to be 100% outdoors. In the event of inclement weather, we will do our best to reschedule. All families will be physically distanced in their own space. All participants must bring a mask. Limit to each workshop is 10 families. Recommended ages 6-12. Parents are expected to stay on-site. All participants must register in advance, and programs often fill quickly.
