Farm School (10 yrs +)

Fall After School Registration opens August 7th at 8 am!

Program runs September 6th - November 16th, Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays until 5:15 pm

During our After School Program, we give children an opportunity to tend animals, explore gardens, build hay forts, play outdoor games, and decompress after a busy school day.

A farm staff member will meet your child at the front office of Shelburne Community School at 1:50 pm (on Wednesdays, early release days) or 2:50 pm (Mondays and Thursdays) and walk them to New Village Farm.
