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.
Each year we offer a few 4-day youth summer classes where kids can learn
first hand about sustainable farming.
2015 Youth Classes are Full
2016 Class offerings will be listed in the Spring.

the City of Longmont
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
What do kids need to bring?
Sun block, water
container, extra clothes, tennis shoes, snack/lunch
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.
