Fledgling Farmers

Fridays  8:30 to 11:30am
or 12:30 to 3:00pm

This program is designed for older preschool/pre-k/k student who can easily separate from his/her parent or caregiver and is able to manage his/her own toileting needs.

The fledgling farmers claim Cuvilly’s barnyard and kids’ garden as their home base with visits to the woods and fields as well as the farm fields of the Three Sisters Garden Project located on the Cuvilly Campus.

The children will participate in farm chores and activities such as:

 

Mucking and re-bedding stalls

Preparing animal feed

Filling water buckets and hay mangers

Starting seedlings, and planting and weeding gardens.

 

Doing this they learn to understand the unique needs of each being and begin to realize their own connection with them. At the core of this farm experience is Cuvilly’s guiding principal: “All life is sacred and the diversity of life is essential for the well-being of the planet.” As the children learn about farm life and build their farm skills they will also be building an understanding of themselves as a part of the greater earth community.
