spring science program
Our Spring Science Program has always been one of our most favorite events, as we share our farm with happy, excited students and wonderful teachers. We truly love this program and it means the world to us to be able to be here each year for you and your students.
Unfortunately, we are all now in the midst of something the world could never have expected --- the Coronavirus pandemic. Our priority has always been a completely safe learning environment for teachers, students, and staff, but the rapid progression of this disease will make this all but impossible. At present, we have no confirmed cases of the Coronavirus at the farm, but with large groups of visitors coming in, there would be no reasonable way to isolate or guarantee against additional communal spread of the disease.
As such, we have been left with the very difficult decision of cancelling our Spring Science Program for the 2020 season. (Group reservation dates are from April 14th to May 13th). We felt it best to notify everyone as soon as possible, especially all the teachers who have made reservations, so they can make any necessary changes, notify parents, cancel buses, and so forth.
Going forward, we will begin preparing for our Fall Pumpkin Field Trips, and yes, our Spring Science Program for 2021. We look forward to seeing you during these events in the coming months.
While we will greatly miss seeing all our wonderful teachers, parents, and students this Spring, we know it is the best decision to keep everyone safe during these uncharted times as we navigate the Coronavirus together. Thank you for your continued support and we wish you safety and well-being during this time.
