We work with teachers who want to think outside the classroom, helping them to develop a 'farm-based' curriculum to integrate into their lesson plans. Programs are tailored for individual students' goals and include a customized classroom lesson plan anchored with at least two farm visits for hands-on learning. Plans may include the creation of and onsite learning in a school garden.
At the heart of Holly Hill Farm field trips is the interconnection of children to the food they eat, to the people who grow and have grown it, to the earth and all the systems and cycles that make it happen.
And to make the experience the most rewarding it can be, the farm educators work closely with the school/organization to design a trip that connects to what is being learned in the classroom and to district, state, and national standards, as well as the individual needs of the children.
These visits can last from a single hour to a full day. However long you stay, the children will continuously thrill in the hands-on learning and discovery that makes up our curriculum.

Our farm-based curriculum guides give teachers the tools they need to think outside of the classroom. With expert guidance, we help schools to plan field trips and to execute educational gardens for outdoor learning.
