Gardening With Children
The Gardening with Children Program is structured to teach your children how to grow their own nutrient dense food. We follow the SPIN farming/gardening business model and we grow Biodynamically. Our crops include produce, fruit, medicinal herbs, honey and mushrooms. We will observe the movement of the frogs and butterflies as well as the movement of the planets.
Below the forms section you will find some links that will go into greater detail on the topics that will be covered over the season.

Here is the Lesson Reservation Form:
All children receive the first class free and if their parents can't afford the "tuition" Abundant Life Farm will give "scholarships" to as many as possible. The idea is to teach people to eat the food where they live and how to grow it in their own backyards. The best way to accomplish this is via teaching the children, who will teach their parents.
My passion is to teach as many people as possible how to grow their own healthy food; I want to help people take control of their own food supply because if we don't, we will be eating what the multi-national corporations offer and that's not healthy at all.
This season we are making a documentary film on the Gardening with Children Program. John Hazard, who is a local of Ulster Heights and has worked for both National Geographic and the Discovery Channel, wants to be a SPIN Farmer...so in exchange for the education he will be filming. Below please find a Model Realease form and this must be signed if you want your child in the film.

At the bottom of the page I have included a google calendar that will give you the time and age group for the classes and briefly what "tasks" will be performed. As reservations are made I will post the first name of the child attending this way everyone can see how many are attending for that particular lesson. The maximum per class is 10 and it's always the maximum fun when we have 10. If anything is unclear please send me an email Lborghi@abundantlifefarm.com. Looking forward to months of sweet memories and until then Bee Well!
