Orchard Explorers Summer Workshop

Tuesday Mornings June 26-August 21

Food’s journey from the field to your fork is fascinating! Join in the fun this summer as educator Brandon Hertzler connects children to the wonders of farming through games, stories, and hands-on learning.



Children ages 7 to 10. A designated chaperone is required, since we are not a registered child care facility. One chaperone may bring multiple children, but we just require that a chaperone remain with children at all times.

Tuesdays, June 26-Aug 21, 9:30 to 11:00 a.m.
