Youth Farming Classes with Kena

As our neighboring communities grow,  the chance for children to experience the rich farming history of this region becomes more difficult.  Ollin Farms is dedicated to preserving those traditions and providing youth the opportunity to experience farm life first hand.   In 2015, we are excited to be launching our eighth season of youth education classes on the farm.

Frequently Asked Questions:


Are the classes the same from year to year?
We have kids that have been returning every summer; we change some things or introduce new subjects each year. Just like the farm, the farm classes are always adapting, and each year we add new themes and activities.

What do kids need to bring?

Sun block, water container,  extra clothes, tennis shoes, lunch and a snack for the first three days (full-day groups only). 

What if my kid(s) don't fit the suggested ages?
We suggest ages based on our experience with the activities involved and the goal to get all the kids working together. That being said, just like the farm itself, these classes build teamwork between different ages and skill levels.
