Intro to youth programs

Here at First Generation Farmers we believe in the benefits of teaching children, our future farmers, about the importance of farming in today’s world. We’ve noticed a need within our community to provide age appropriate, engaging, and practical educational programs that focus on the relationship that farmers have with the land and animals. Within our farm we have chickens and ducks, goats and sheep, a horse, worms, compost piles, tons of grapes and rows and rows of organic produce out at our field in Discovery Bay. Come see for yourself how a working farm operates and meet some of our friendly volunteer farmers.

In School Farm Experience

Let our farm come to you and we will bring to your school some farm animals, a vermi-compost, fun coloring stations, and the opportunity to plant seeds alongside our farmers. It will surely be an experience that won't be forgotten.

After school program

FGF offers a variety of 90-minute after-school workshops that get kids outdoors, active, and engaging directly with seeds and soil, animals and insects. Our creative projects and experiential lessons will have their imaginations buzzing with new ideas about how helping hands, together with a healthy earth, can grow the most wholesome and delicious food.

Homeschool

We know the homeschool experience can be greatly enriched by opportunities for hands-on learning in dynamic group settings. We’ve designed the FGF campus as a giant outdoor classroom where homeschool students can connect with each other and real life farmers who love to share their knowledge about how plants grow, the benefits of organic farming, and how to care for farm animals.

Summer Camp

Week-long summer camp sessions are another great way for kids to get their hands in the dirt, feed and care for our furry, wooly, and feathered friends, and discover the wonders of life on a real, working farm.
