Educational Tours

The farm offers educational farm tours of its gardens and barnyard for a minimum of 60 minutes, and at a minimum cost of $10/adult. Two hour tours include a work experience on the farm. In 2014, the farm hosted a group from the Baltimore Food and Faith Project of Johns Hopkins University(http://www.livablefutureblog.com/2015/02/white-rose-farm), a class from the Maryland Institute College of Art, a class from McDaniel College, and a family group with autistic children. Groups can bring a picnic meal and eat here on the farm; they can also pick fresh food from the garden. 

Tours can be structured for children as well. Interested? Please contact Sally Voris at sally@whiterosefarm.com

 
 
"Thanks so much for hosting our class last week! It was really magical for the students to get out of the classroom, put hands in the earth and cook over a fire. We all felt so connected, to the land and to each other! 
 
You were a great facilitator, engaging the students in mind and body and place; so inspiring to learn from someone who loves the land, it shows in the way you speak and move. We will come back and visit soon, so happy you exist on this planet!" 
 
Scott Berzofsky and Katie Bachler , adjunct professors, Maryland Institute College of Art 

 

"The students really liked working; they loved that they got to use their hands and to do activities that they've never done before.  A few were also quite taken with the chickens and with Buttercup; Sean told me he'd never seen a cow in real life, and none of them had ever held a chicken...Every class is different, but they always have fun.  I never know how they'll react to things we do in or out of class.  They enjoyed the visit!  Thanks!
