Taught by local community members, artists, and professors, our adult enrichment classes offer focused instruction on a variety of subjects and skills. They are designed to engage participants in history, craft, agriculture, and ecology. Whether exploring the fiber arts, participating in an educational mushroom walk on our trails, or learning to make cheese, our programs will introduce you to new techniques and ideas and connect you to the local community.
Join us at the farm for an investigation of our past, present and future.
