Digging Deeper! Arid Lands Agriculture
This 6th-12th grade Common Core-aligned field trip program is designed to teach students about the challenges of producing food in regions with water scarcity while providing sustainable solutions to these problems. In this 3 hour experiential field trip, students will examine the role of water in our ecosystem, move water through a model irrigation system, and plant, maintain and harvest food crops that are cultivated in arid regions throughout the world. Regional plants in our Desert Edibles Garden demonstrate to students that the Sonoran Desert has provided food for peoples in our region for centuries. Tying it all together, students will prepare and eat a dish using arid lands crops and discover that we can grow nutritious, flavorful foods while remaining stewards of our scarce water resources in a warming world. The cost per student is $8. (Adults attending as chaperones are free, however we encourage a ratio of 1 adult to every 6-8 students) For more information contact Parker Filer at tvf.fieldtrips@gmail.com.

Cancelation Policy
Our programs are offered on a first-come/first-served basis and are funded entirely by grants, donations, and modest programs fees which we are committed to keeping low. Many of our programs also rely on the support of volunteers who donate their passion, energy and time to being on the farm with us and your students.

As such, last-minute cancelations and changes in group size pose a number of significant challenges including: inefficient use of resources (food and materials prepared in advance), logistical complications in coordinating intern/staff/volunteer schedules and hours, lost program revenue, and- most disappointingly- a missed opportunity for another student group to visit and enjoy the farm on that date.

We require a 72 hour cancellation notice for a full refund. Failure to do so will result in expectation of full payment in the amount listed in the confirmation letter you will receive.
