WAKEMAN TOWN FARM CLASSES FOR KIDS
It's not too late to sign up for Fall programming at WTF! Our Creative Nature: Parent plus Preschooler class still has spots open for youngsters to spend time outdoors sampling what is ripe on the vines, seeing whether there are eggs in our nesting boxes, and visiting with our favorite furry and feathered farm friends. Our Jr. Farm Apprentice program is also open for 11-14 year olds to rotate through various aspects of farm life, from animal care, visits, and feeding through maintenance of our vegetable beds and farming.
