Where the Wild Things Grow

Finally a chance for kids to get connected to the Horn Farm!

Join us for this exciting youth summer program for ages 6-12 - once a week for four weeks - where we will explore both the wild edges of the farm and the cultivated gardens. 

Under the guidance of Jason Reed, Nature Studies Instructor Waldorf School of Baltimore, students will engage the natural world by exploring all that the Horn Farm land has to offer. Through an emphasis on holistic and fun activities, come prepared to forage for wild food, play in the stream, learn to track and observe wildlife, grow and harvest sprouts and microgreens, and explore the natural world. Activities will be outdoor in ALL weather, and students should come each day with a backpack of appropriate supplies (clothes, sunscreen, bug spray, towels).
