Youth Programs

LexFarm youth programs offer many opportunities for hands-on learning and play in a beautiful farm setting. Based in the LexFarm learning garden, our classes expose children to all aspects of the growing cycle: planting, weeding, watering, and harvesting. We explore the wildlife at the Arlington reservoir and care for the animals at neighboring Silk Fields Farm. At this time our programs serve children age 2 through 3rd grade. Please reach out to Rachel at [email protected] with any questions about youth programs, and we hope to see your family around the farm soon!
