Students will visit the 10-acre Kortright Organic Farm to learn firsthand where food comes from and see how everything on the farm is interconnected.
The Kortright organic farm provides fresh produce to the local area.
Every visit will be a little different, as farming is a seasonal cycle. Depending on the season, students may learn about crop rotation, companion planting, seed production, pollinators, composting, the importance of planting a variety of crops and how the local pond and wildlife enhance production.
Students may also get the chance to plant, maintain or harvest crops at the farm or plant their own seed to take home.
