Children's Tours of the Farm, by Joanne

Do your children know where their food comes from?  Do they understand the differences between  conventional and organic food?  Or the importance of that?  Our new Farm Educator, Joanne Rosenbaum, is coordinating tours that take about an hour, discuss/demonstrate the principles of organic growing, include visits to the fields & hoop houses, as well as the chickens, children's garden, & compost heap, & provide a seedling to take home!  There are additional lessons on specific topics (see poster below). We cater to children's ages & conform to PA learning standards. For more info, contact Joanne Rosenbaum at 610-558-5396, or email Jrosenbaum@osfphila.org. We're at the corner of Legion Road and Red Hill Road (click here for map), just across Red Hill Road from the large convent of the Sisters of St. Francis (Our Lady of Angels). You also can check our website at www.redhillfarm.org!
