Join us on the farm!

Poughkeepsie Farm Project welcomes school and community groups to the farm throughout the season. We facilitate educational farm visits for learners of all ages. Sessions are typically two hours and include fun-filled, age-appropriate activities. Hands-on learning about food systems and biology ignites curiosity about the social and natural sciences. First-hand experiences cooking with fresh produce inspire and support healthy eating choices.
