Classes

Our vibrant farm setting allows us to offer classes for kids and adults who get to grow and harvest the food they will transform into healthy meals using delicious recipes that are easy to replicate at home. With our hands-on classes, students learn how to plant, nurture and harvest a garden as well as how to prepare fresh produce and plan quick, easy meals that the whole family will love.

Hope Farms offers a full range of cooking and gardening classes for every age, young and old, as well as Scout programs, summer camps, private classes for team building and birthdays.
