Farm & Forest School
Our program includes exploring outdoors, animal tracking, plant and animal study, nature & sensory awareness, storytelling, edible & medicinal plants, sit spot, nature journaling, mentorship, empowerment, primitive skills & crafts, and lots of fun and play!
The Giving Gardens of Indiana Farm & Forest School aims to cultivate curiosity, compassion, and connection with the natural world. Studies show that time spent in nature increases attention span, ability to concentrate, self-esteem, creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Children who spend more time outdoors and participate in cooperative group activities also tend to have healthier relationships with friends and family.
We support children to develop an appreciation for each other and the natural world so that they grow into dedicated leaders and environmental stewards in their communities.
