Brickyard Educational Farm

Brickyard Educational Farm’s philosophy is that hands-on, environmental and agricultural education experiences are components of a well-rounded education for students and scouts to lead healthier lives and improve their natural environment. Students break up into small groups, and are lead through each station simultaneously with a Brickyard Educational Farm educator. Stations include gardening, chickens, and compost, with the ultimate goal being to learn the interdependent roles of plants, organisms, and animals on a farm. The farm can accommodate elementary school and high school aged students and scouts. There is a shaded spot for lunch.
