October Field Trips
The educational tour is approximately 1 hour in length. The first portion of our tour is seated on bales of straw where the tour guide educates students on pumpkin varieties, corn, gourds and the pumpkin lifecycle. The second portion of the tour is walking through the garden where students see plants in various growth stages including pumpkins, bottle gourds, sunflowers, corn, luffa sponges and more. The "Corn Room" is a place where students learn about the uses of corn and see the evolution of how corn is processed and even get to use an old-fashioned corn grinder! Each child gets an opportunity to milk a "cow" and learn about how milk gets processed. And of course, the tour is not complete without a visit to see our animals. The tour concludes with each child picking a child-size pumpkin of their very own to take home.
