Cure Organic Farm is committed to engaging and encouraging the surrounding community with a variety of opportunities to learn more about local agriculture and farming and the many ways it plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy ecosystem. The Farm offers a range of educational programs, camps, and classes, including volunteering programs, farm tours, classes, and a unique Kid’s Farm Camp.
Classes include Summer Jams where participants make and take home jars of jam and Mixed Vegetable Pickles and Cucumber Pickles where visitors learn to pickle a variety of vegetables and cucumbers and take them home along with recipes and pickling techniques. Other classes include learning to can peaches and tomatoes and making salsa.
The farm offers special farm tours where visitors can witness agriculture and experience how food is produced from farm to table. The farm tour takes in livestock, vegetable production, watersheds, and health or holistic management.
The Kids' Farm Camp offers opportunities for children between the ages of six and nine to experience the workings of a small, organic farm, the wonders of the natural world, as well as their possibilities and potential. Children on the camp learn all about organic gardening, including how and when to plant seeds, the basics of caring for farm animals, including feeding, composting and collecting eggs, and the satisfaction of producing good food and living a healthy lifestyle. Other Farm Camp activities include making and planting beds, composting, weeding, watering, harvesting, and observing. The children also learn to cook with food grown from the primary farm fields. Activities involving farm animals include feeding the pigs, feeding and watering the ducks and the chickens, collecting chicken eggs, refilling nesting boxes, and observing the honey bee hives. Arts and crafts activities include keeping nature journals, learning to make corn stock dolls, mobiles and collages with objects found on the farm, such as sheep wool, feathers, and honeycomb, and vegetable stamps. Children can enjoy stories, songs and puppet shows in the shade of the fruit trees during the heat of the day. Children also take part in projects such as digging irrigation ditches and seed identification charts, and each week of camp ends with a gathering of campers and staff to share a sumptuous lunch prepared with food gathered by the children.
