May 2017

Re-energize as our knowledgeable instructors engage you and your children on a fully guided, hands on tour.

The diversity of learning opportunities presented in the outdoor environment can be found here on our farm.   We have three different programs to meet the needs of your students. Tours are structured to meet the requirements of the New BC Curriculum for Science.

Tours are offered weekdays throughout the month of May.

The Coverts have hosted hundreds of preschool through to grade 6 age children at their farm since 2003.
