The Agricultural Arts program teaches sustainable interdependence with the natural world through the areas of horticulture, natural history and collaboration with the practical arts. The children work on a wide variety of projects during their weekly class periods, which vary with the grade and the season. Past and ongoing projects include greenhouse work, fence building, gardening, harvesting, food preparation and preservation, tree and shrub planting and nature journaling. It is our aim that every child graduates with this natural will-based work as a part of their life experience, and that each be given a chance to feel respect and understanding for the earth. In this specialty class nature is given a voice as one of the children’s teachers.
