Experiential learning is a process in which children can holistically obtain knowledge through education then perform what they have learned through real-world application.
We believe field trips to our farm can provide students with impactful and formative experiences. Our objective is to educate children on where their fruit comes from, food sustainability, Georgia agriculture, harvesting and the role of farmers.
Our strawberry patch provides a fun, hands-on and scholastic experience where growing minds can learn, watch, process, do and play!
