Discover Science on the Farm
Alongside the food we are growing, we are also growing learners here at Flinchbaugh's Orchard. Through hands-on lessons and projects, students will dig-in to agricultural and environmental science content in a fresh, relevant way, allowing learners to actively engage in inquiry and discovery -- both foundational elements in science. 
This summer camp is geared for learners 8-12 years old and taught by Ethan.

Wednesdays July 14 through August 18, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
