As the sun begins to shine brighter and we trade our winter coats for flip flops, Mill City Grows is hard at work preparing for our Summer Farm Field Trips! Whether you have worked with us in the past or are hoping to work with Mill City Grows for the first time this year, we would love to have you out to one of our farm this year! Please see below for details.
Farm Field Trips will be offered for 1, 2 or 3 hours during the following days & times:Tuesday afternoons (1:00 - 4:00pm)Wednesday all day (9:00am - 12:00pm or 1:00 - 4:00pm)Friday mornings (9:00am - 12:00pm)
We can accommodate up to 15 students at our small farm on Middlesex Street and up to 40 students at our Big Farm in Pawtucketville. We cannot provide transportation to either site at this time. We ask that at least one staff member be present for field trips of up to 10 students, 2 staff members for up to 20 students, 3 staff members for up to 30 students, and 4 staff members for up to 40 students.
Each field trip will include a farm scavenger hunt/farm lesson and a farm fresh snack. Longer field trips will also include a farm project.
We have a sliding scale fee for field trips, but will not turn any organization away due to financial reasons.
If you are interested in scheduling a farm field trip, please contact Maggie Notopoulos at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Spots tend to go quickly! Looking forward to hearing from you!
