School Visitation Program

Padua Students

The School Visitation Program is a hands-on program designed to reinforce concepts and field methods in the areas of environmental science and ecology for grade school students. It was developed by the University Farm administration with the support of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Biology and the Center for Science and Mathematics Education.

Since 2010, the program was expanded to teach concepts on environmental friendly food production as part of the Farm Food Program. Topics include composting, beekeeping, energy usage, water conservation, hydroponics, biocontrols, permaculture and chemicals free farming.

The Farm Visitation program serves between 10 to 15 schools and over 600 students and their science teachers yearly.

The program was initiated, thanks to a three-year grant from the Dolphin Trust Fund in Fall 2002. For more information, please contact Dr. Ana Locci or Patty Gregory at 216.368.0274.
