Farmer for a Day (or four) in August

Yesterday, I reminded readers of one a local camp offering the week before school starts. It isn’t the only one in town.

Southborough’s Chestnut Hill Farm is bringing back its “Farmer for a Day” program the week of August 19th. I know that sounds like it’s just a one day offering. It’s actually just a half day, but kids are welcome to sign up for up to four sessions that week.

The Trustees of Reservations is holding the morning program for children ages 6-10. It’s offered Monday, August 19 through Thursday, August 22 from 9:00 am to noon:

Back by popular demand! Dig into the last days of summer at Chestnut Hill Farm and become a junior farmer for a day (or four)! You’ll help care for farm animals, learn to grow farm-fresh food, hike the trails, create natural crafts, and explore the farm from the eyes of its most important team member: the farmer!

Parents, your little farmers will come home with stories of adventure, a deeper understanding of where their food comes from, a sense of responsibility, and memories made with new friends (people and animals!).

This drop-off program is designed for children ages 6-10. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. This program sold out during April vacation, so early registration is recommended!

Registration closes two days before the event. If it is within two days and you wish to register, please email or call 508-658-3112 to find out if there is space remaining.

The cost per day is $44 per member child and $55 per non-member. To sign up, click here.
