Kids in grades 3-5 will follow the nutrient trail of consumers, producers, and decomposers while meeting goats, chickens and red wiggler friends, the worms. Visiting the garden, greenhouse, orchard, and animal barn, students will investigate how plants depend on animals and insects for their survival and how the energy of the sun and nutrients travel through the nutrient cycle. Students will interact with Tollgate Farm staff as they question, hypothesize, experiment, analyze data, conclude and question again through hands-on STEAM challenges.
