A trip to Mill Creek Farm consists of a one-hour tour of the farm and facilities. During the tour your group will explore the many aspects of urban farming including our chemical free/sustainable growing practices, composting, food access, our bee apiary as well as demonstration projects such as our innovative tool-shed made of recycled and salvaged materials, a composting toilet, a living roof, cob (a natural building method) walls and oven, solar electricity, and a found object mosaic. Our educational programming can be adapted for all ages and we can link activities to themes relevant to the group (i.e. urban/vacant land use, community service, nutrition, environmental stewardship, plant life cycles, sustainability, etc.). If your group (teenagers & older) is interested in expanding the trip to include farm work, please contact us for arrangements. As a nonprofit, we rely on contributions for our educational programs. Current rates are as follows: · Public Schools in the Mill Creek Neigborhood: FREE OF CHARGE. · Elementary Students: $6/student. · Middle School to High School Students: $8/student. · Colleges, universities, and conference groups: $150/groups of fifteen or less; $10 for each additional person over 15. · Companies: $300/event for groups of fifteen or less; $20 for each additional participant over 15.
