Welcome to the BCA Education Program!

We are so excited to have you with us! We are thrilled to have a new space designated for safe and fun learning opportunities. Our new outdoor classroom is inside the gates of the CSA Farm so students will be able to observe and participate in the growing seasons right before their very eyes.

We will offer classes for preschool, elementary, and middle school-aged students in the fall. Please visit the site below to register for classes. Be sure to choose the correct date, time, and age group.

Each class is designed to introduce children to the importance of the how, what, why, where, when’s 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! In some lessons, we will test their estimation and geometry skills, and in others, we will encourage students to take time and observe and participate in the natural growing space of our CSA farm. They will soon discover there is a great deal to growing and harvesting the food that nourishes us all!

Please print out and complete the Farm Forms below before your first class with us. Please submit to the teacher upon arrival to class. Hope to see you and your little farmers soon!

Saturday Story Hour

Saturday Story Hour begins April 30, 2022. The cost is $5 per person. No registration is required. Walk-ups welcome! Children must be accompanied by a caregiver. Recommended ages 2-5

Caregivers must purchase a ticket, and all children who are of walking age must purchase a ticket.

 

In the first part of our story hour, we invite children to come and explore our outdoor classroom and tour the surrounding farm space.  We will gather for the second half of the hour to have our storytime.  Caregivers are welcome to bring a blanket or yoga mat for their children to relax in the shade and listen to the week’s literary selections.  Families are encouraged to end the hour with our self-guided storybook walk.
