It was such a delight to invite classes and homeschool groups back to the farm this fall, after two years without students! Now we’re looking forward to getting our spring programs back in bloom as well! Spring programs will be offered weekdays in May, from the 2nd through the 27th, at 10:00 am and 12:00 noon. Our Virtual School Program is also available year-round for those classes who may be unable to visit in person.
Reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Tuesday, January 4th, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling our office at (360) 686-3537. If emailing, please include your top three choices of dates and times, your school and grade level, and number of classes/students. If you call and get our answering machine, leave your name, number, and email address, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. (Email is usually the easiest way for us to correspond with you.)

PAYMENT POLICY: We require a $60.00 per session non-refundable deposit to secure your reservation, which is applied to your total payment. Once we have received your deposit, we will send your confirmation and instructions. The remaining balance is due upon visitation day. For schools requiring a purchase order, you may pay the full amount at once (in the event of a cancellation or no-show, we would still require payment of the deposit amount).
