The Problem

It is our wish that children will learn the importance of animal and environmental sustainability and care, for both domestic and wild animals.

Our Plan

We plan to achieve this goal by teaching children how fascinating animals are, and how integral they are to our farm and also our ecosystem. For example, chickens are great composters and also eat ticks and other pets in addition to providing delicious eggs. Our goats eat poison ivy and keep the weeds down and also provide milk and cheese. The wildlife on the farm exists in a delicate balance, with coyotes doing their part to keep rodent populations at bay, and the birds spreading seeds which result in our beautiful, lush green woods that surround the farm. Hiring animal rescue experts to come and give presentation is where we incur a lot of the cost for this educational session of summer camp on the farm.
