We are closed for 2019 and are not yet booking field trips for the 2020 season. Please check back during the winter of 2019.
Here at Pure Land, we feel strongly that education is one of our most important duties. As local farms and backyard gardens have grown scarce, young people in particular have become removed from the practice of growing food. We would love to help your students explore the wonders and challenges of a working fruit and vegetable farm.
All Field Trips are held in the spring, April and early May.
