Program Description & Details

Beyond just a place for growing food, the farm is the perfect spot to exercise your creative muscles. Whether it’s the stark beauty of winter foliage, the rich greenery that follows spring rain, the beautiful blooms of summer, or the striking colours of fall, nature provides a natural palate to inspire the artist inside all of us. We’ll explore both Loutet Farm and the surrounding forest, gathering material and learning about how we grow such a diverse range of vegetables, fruits, and flowers. Students will learn how some plants have been used for many generations to create works of art, natural dyes, and more. Hands-on opportunities abound in this field trip, with a chance to make their own nature-inspired art throughout the visit.
