Programs for Children
Hawthorne Valley Farm was envisioned as a place where children could experience a working farm and, through active participation, learn practical skills, develop social relationships, and gain a deeper sense of self and relationship to nature. Since 1972, we have hosted more than 20,000 children, and the tradition continues.
Our program activities are designed to bring children closer to nature, each other, and themselves. We hope that our programs will not only give children the knowledge they need to make healthy food choices, but also will provide them with the tools they need to develop their skills and to build healthy communities.
Hawthorne Valley Farm offers a variety of day and residential programs for children in kindergarten through high school.
