FARMER VISITS

Farmer visits are a fun addition to our education program! Our farmers are flexible in what we can offer at this time. If you have a topic in mind that you don’t see here, just ask! If you have a school garden, we can use the space to do more hands-on activities as well.

Minimum $150/hour for up to 30 students (one GDG farmer/educator). Please inquire about larger groups or speaking for school assemblies.

Book a farmer visit by emailing education@greendoorgourmet.com Please provide three options for dates and the programming you’d prefer.
