About Friends on the Farm Afternoon Adventures

In this 3-week Tuesday afterschool program we will focus on how Powisset’s farm animals and native birds prepare for winter and we will celebrate the winter solstice. Each week we will participate in hands-on outdoor STEAM learning activities while maintaining social distance. Register for all three classes or one at a time!

Tuesday, December 7: We will visit Powisset’s chickens and pigs to observe their preparations for winter. After learning in the barnyard and paddocks, we will head into the kitchen to bake mini carrot cakes to enjoy or take home to share.

Tuesday, December 14: We will focus on the wild birds at Powisset Farm to learn how they prepare for the winter months. After discovering the birds, we will create a special bird feeder to take home and hang in the backyard so the entire family can watch the wild birds prepare for winter.

Tuesday, December 21: We will learn about the winter solstice and its important connection to farming. To celebrate the shortest day of the year, we will create our own solstice lanterns from upcycled materials. Next, we will head into the kitchen to make homemade fruit salsa and cinnamon sugar tortilla chips.

This drop-off class is designed for children ages 7-11. Class is limited to 10 students to allow for social distancing.
