What? The Dickinson College Farm in Boiling Springs will host a variety of educational workshops this fall. Through fun, hands-on activities directed by Dickinson students, children will explore a sustainable farm and learn how nourishing food moves from seed to soil to table.

How will parents be involved? Parents are encouraged to participate! Alternatively, parents are welcome to observe, take a self-guided tour of the farm, relax in the shade or take a short drive into beautiful Boiling Springs. At the end of the program, children are invited to show parents what they've learned around the farm.

Heather Livingston is a senior Environmental Studies major at Dickinson College. After her study abroad experience last fall with The School for Field Studies in Costa Rica, Heather grew to understand and appreciate the concept of sustainable agriculture. While in Costa Rica she applied to work at the Dickinson College Farm and began working there when she returned to the states in January. Heather worked at the farm this summer and is currently a student worker. In addition to her farm job, she is developing a farm-based curriculum for children, under the guidance of farm manager, Jenn Halpin. Heather hopes that by way of education, younger generations will understand the importance of organic and sustainable agriculture.

Can't wait to see you at the farm!
