Afterschool Programs

Posted on by

Graze in Peace offers educational opportunities for local middle and high school students through our afterschool Sustainable Living and Humane Education Programs. Each program meets at the farm one day/week for 6 weeks starting in the Fall and again in Spring. Programs include classroom activities in our new community center yurt along with hands-on farm and garden-based activities.

The Sustainable Living Program empowers students to engage in thought-provoking discussion and activities that will give them tools to guide them toward healthier and more planet-friendly lifestyle choices.

We will explore animal agriculture’s effects on our planet and focus on building a science-based foundation of knowledge around our food system. Hands-on food prep, cooking, gardening, and farm-based skill-building opportunities make up a large part of this program.

Students will leave with knowledge, tools and a renewed sense of hope for the future that will benefit themselves, their community and ultimately, the small planet we all share.

Our Humane Education Program offers students hands-on farm activities that will engage them in building relationships with some of the ambassador animals at Graze in Peace. Students will be encouraged to explore mutually-beneficial relationships with those who are different than themselves, yet no less deserving of respect and consideration. This program is a key part of promoting our mission of increasing the circle of compassion to include all beings. Included will be presentations and activities in our community-center yurt along with farm-based activities with some of the farm animals.

Registration for after-school programs will begin again in August, 2019. Message us if you or your school would like more information.
