Children learn so much when they put on barn boots and get their hands dirty. Their efforts nourish both themselves and the whole community. -NCS Parent

About Us

Where most classrooms end, ours begin.

Farm & Garden

Why a Farm?

Often cited as a highlight of the NCS experience, our farm program provides opportunities for real and meaningful work that teach children valuable life lessons.

Caring for animals, individually and as a group, teaches children how to nurture other beings.

Doing actual farm work shows children the importance of their individual contributions to a larger community.

Understanding where our food comes from is best learned by being part of a physical process of growing and harvesting food.

Spending time on the farm allows children to develop a strong connection to the environment and a future interest in protecting it.

Gaining an understanding of the lifecycle of plants and animals, and the interconnectedness of all organisms, enhances learning across all academic disciplines.
