UNM Farm Trips & Garden

Hands on

In the fall, we get the kids out into orchards to harvest apples. Harvesting and hauling apples makes eating them taste even more delicious!

Helping Hands

Students from UNM Taos Kids Campus and Taos Academy work together at Taos Valley Farms to harvest onions.

Outdoor Classrooms

Bringing children out to farms gives them first hand experience with the elements needed in farming; fresh air, clean water and healthy soil.

Sencing Nature

Field trips present an opportunity to engage all of the students senses. Sense impressions are a critical learning tool for the young student.

Learning to Appreciate

A deep appreciation for nature develops out of early positive experiences that allow for enjoying the grandness of it all.

Planting Seeds

Back at campus it's time to plant the garden beds. We'll update details as they grow.
