Good Food Day
Good Food Day is E.A.T. South’s field trip program for ages 4 and up. During their field trip, students gain hands-on experience on our beautiful urban farm.
Group tours typically last about an hour and a half. Teachers and group leaders may request specific farm lessons. We also organize tours for scout troops, garden clubs, churches and community groups.
Bring a sack lunch and enjoy a picnic on the farm! We have picnic blankets, picnic tables and folding chairs and tables.
Maximum group size is 100 student participants. Larger groups should split up over two days. Most field trips take place between 8 AM and 12 PM Tuesday - Friday. We can work with your schedule if you need another day or time.

Learning about our farm's ecosystem through song and dance
Interactive lessons about chickens, ducks, bees, compost and vegetables
