Campus Farm Program
Our Farm Manager collaborates with Eliada’s teachers to incorporate the Farm into the program curriculum as part of a structured agriscience class. For elementary to high school-aged students, detailed teaching topics include class sessions addressing agriculture, conservation, farm ecology, natural irrigation, and pest control. Students take weekly field trips to our Hoophouse, Grow Dome, and Market Garden to learn about sustainable farming and get hands-on experience. Our farm and gardening program equips youth with knowledge on gardening, and nutrition while improving health outcomes, self-efficacy, and pro-social skills, all leading to increased resiliency. Students are able to learn about sustainable agricultural practices, obtain school credit, and receive hands-on experience while simultaneously contributing to food security.
