This unique summer farm program takes place on the grounds of Ambler Farm, a historic and sustainably run community farm in Wilton. This is an excellent opportunity for your child to experience farm life. Kids will not only learn about the plants in our educational gardens, but also have opportunities to work in the gardens. Spending time with our sheep, Nutmeg and Clover, is a favorite activity as well as checking to see if our chickens have laid eggs. Baby chicks, rabbits and visiting animals provide engaging opportunities for kids to interact and learn about animals. The week is sure to include woodworking, hayrides, planting, harvesting, hands on projects, animals, cooking, and more! Kids will be divided by grade levels for appropriate grade level activities. Each week will consist of different activities.
