Preschool Fridays on the Farm

Summer Preschool Fridays on the Farm are designed for preschool through early elementary-aged children (though older siblings are welcome too). Program participants will engage in the same activities as children living on a 1900s farm, while learning what “Share the Harvest” means at Howell Farm today.

July 23 – "Busy Bees"

Why are bees important to farmers? Children will learn about the jobs they do at Howell Farm, and how they talk to one another while they work! In this unique program, kids will have a “bee’s eye” view of the flowers in a special game that simulates pollination.

August 6 & 20 – "How Does Our Garden Grow?"

In this program, children will learn what a plant needs in order to grow, and discover our favorite vegetables growing above ground, below it, or somewhere in the middle...then they’ll help us pick, collect, or dig them up!

Cost & Scheduling

$10 per person (adults & children ages 1+) for groups of 5–15, including adults.

Children must be accompanied by an adult, and all participants age one year and older must have tickets. Programs begin promptly at 10 a.m., and are rain or shine except in cases of severe weather. Each session has a minimum of 5 participants; in the event that registration closes before we reach the minimum, farm staff will contact registrants to reschedule for another day.
