Dig In to Science

Discover Science on the Farm

Alongside the food we are growing, we are also growing learners here at Flinchbaugh’s Orchard.  Through hands-on lessons and projects, students will dig-in to agricultural and environmental science content in a fresh, relevant way, allowing learners to actively engage in inquiry and discovery – both foundational elements in science.

This summer camp is geared for learners 8-12 years and taught by Ethan.
