Welcome to the BCA Education Program!

The BCA Education Program offers classes and workshops for preschool, elementary, and middle school-aged children. Farm school will begin again on April 6th on Thursdays from 10:30-11:30. Our program will run until June 8th for preschool-aged children (ages 2-5.)


Please visit the links below or our calendar to register for classes. When registering be sure to choose the correct date, time, and age group for your child.


Farm School classes are designed to introduce children to the importance of the how, what, why, where, and when of growing fruit, flowers, and vegetables. Children will learn about a variety of topics such as how to plan and plant a garden, upcycle and reuse materials, make compost, create art using natural materials, and more!


We have extended our workshops to incorporate additional horticultural interests. Monthly workshops will be offered for both children and adults! Please visit our calendar for details.


Attention Teachers!

We welcome our teachers and students back for Friday Field Trips beginning in March 2023. Please contact Liz Herrick at Elizabeth.Valdini@parks.ny.gov to register your group.
