Stone Barns Center, Pocantico Hills, After School Programs

in After-school Activities

After-School Programs at Stone Barns Center are designed to bring students in kindergarten through 6th grade to the farm on a weekly basis. Each session includes hands-on chores, animal and plant crafts, and in-depth examinations of life on the farm. This year, students will also harvest and prepare a seasonal meal in the kitchen. After-School programs at Stone Barns Center foster a love for the natural world, teach children where their food comes from, and encourage appreciation of local farms.  Farm Explorers: Farm Life at Stone Barns, Grades K–2, examines all of Stone Barns Center’s farm life. Farmers-in-Training (FIT), Grades 3–6, help our farmers with chores such as collecting eggs and feeding the pigs. After chores are finished, these young farmers work on structured activities such as building trails, amending beds or moving animals. Space is limited. Please register early!  For more information, please contact Sara Hanna: sara@stonebarnscenter.org or 914 366 6200 x111. Visit www.stonebarnscenter.org.
