About the Program

We have offered the science and agriculture education program for Homeschool students at Cedar Circle Farm every spring and fall since the program’s inaugural year in 2015. Our farm is an incredible outdoor classroom with our production fields, forested areas, orchard, and riparian area along the Connecticut River.

Together with our highly-qualified instructors, students share the experience of exploring, discovering and learning the concepts together in order to gain a deeper, scientific understanding of agriculture and ecology. Our approach utilizes hands-on activities, inquiry-based investigations, games, and experiments. Journals are provided each semester for students to take notes or draw observations if they wish and to complete short weekly review assignments. Read more about our educational approach here.

*If after the first class you feel the program is not a good fit for your child, you may be reimbursed for the remaining classes. No reimbursements will be made after the second class of the session.

If you have any questions, email Meredith Rivlin or please call us at (802) 785-4737.
