Slow down, be present, and build grounded, mindful connections with your little ones.

Recognizing that early childhood is a sacred time for nurturing the next generation, we welcome all families to join us for our one-of-a-kind Microgreens program. Inspired by the seasonal rhythms that guide our life here on the farm, these parent-child classes are designed to provide the ideal ecosystem to support our growing children.

Babies and children up to age four, together with their parents, will gather in our beautifully designed Children’s Garden and EcoTots Experience to spend time in nature, practice meaningful work while enjoying the nourishment and support of our community. Drawing from our GROW-EAT-MAKE-PEACE ethos, each class will introduce farm fun, gardening activities, games, music, studies, and other group activities, as well as individual time for families to explore nature while building conscious connections with each other. Parents will be invited to share their experience and insight as we celebrate the joys and challenges that come with raising young children in today’s world.
