What our fans are saying about the Hub Farm!

Teachers:

“I love bringing my students to the Hub Farm because they get to experience hands-on learning within nature and I get to see a side of them I don’t get to see in the classroom. There’s also only so much you can learn from a book.” – 5th Grade Teacher

“The farmers were EXCELLENT with the kids. They allowed freedom for them to ask questions and express ideas while still keeping control on the group and providing fun and educational information!” – non-DPS Teacher

“Each session was full of wonderful experiences for the children! These were priceless as most children do not get such opportunities. The salad creation, tasting the lettuce, finding a turtle, listening to the sounds by the pond – everything was educational and fun and the farmers and teachers were phenomenal and patient.” – DPS Teacher

“I thought the experience was a great enrichment to what our students have been doing in class. We did the theory and this was the practical which will cement concepts they learned. I enjoyed the cooking because kids got a chance to see that eating healthy can also be delicious. The farmers/staff were great and kept concepts age appropriate. It was a wonderful experience. I loved it!” DPS Teacher

My favorite part about my internship was getting to harvest the plants. I learned so many different techniques and learned about vegetables I didn’t even known existed.” – DPS high school intern
