Field Trip Calendar

The calendar below shows available field tirp times for the Goodman Youth Farm and Troy Kids' Garden. Available times are indicated by the word "OPEN," and the maximum number of students we can accomodate at that time. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our Youth Farm Manager, Jennica Skoug, or Ginny Hughes for questions about the Kids' Garden. Guided tours of Troy Gardens are scheduled upon request; please contact to request a tour date.

Spring Field Trips: April 25-June 7

Summer Field Trips: June 19-August 9

Fall Field Trips: September 11-October 25


Field trips generally last 1.5-2 hours. Starting and ending times may be flexible upon request - we will do our best to accomodate your needs.

Weekend Opportunities

If you have a group that can only attend on weekends, consider arranging a service learning trip. The Goodman Youth Farm hosts monthly Saturday morning volunteer days for groups of all ages, and Community GroundWorks has many other volunteer opportunities.

Youth Farm-Challenge Course Field Trips

The Goodman Youth Farm is right next door to MSCR's Elements Team Building and Challenge Course, and scheduling back-to-back field trips at both locations can be a great way to save on busing costs. If you have a large group, you may split students into smaller sub-groups and have them rotate between sites. Contact Emily Peffer for more information, or visit the Elements webpages for MMSD groups or community groups.
