LET’S GET THOSE HANDS DIRTY.
OVERLOOK WILL HAVE PROGRAMS FOR ALL AGES.
While we won’t have programming immediately, we do anticipate some programs beginning as early as 2020, with a few-year ramp-up period to full operations. Below are programs we anticipate offering when we are at full operating capacity.
Overnight programs: One- to six-day programs for elementary through college age students; activities will be an age-appropriate combination of garden/farm work and nutrition and hunger education
Day programs and summer camp: Three- to eight-hour programs for elementary through college age students; activities will be an age-appropriate combination of garden/farm work and nutrition and hunger education; programs will also be available for adults, including corporate groups, Councils on Aging, etc.
Apprenticeships: Two to three apprentices at a time for each of our primary program areas: education, garden, agritourism, livestock (added as the livestock program gets up and running); apprentices will commit to 1 to 2 years and will receive a monthly stipend and housing
Programs for educators: Three- to eight-hour programs for educators on bringing agriculture/food education into the classroom for multiple grade levels and a wide range of subject areas
