Spring into Farming: Follow Nutrient Trail

MSU Tollgate Farm in Novi, Michigan has interactive, educational, and fun school and community field trips designed for a variety of ages.

Spring into Farming Follow: Nutrient Trail (Mid-April - early June): Explore springtime on the farm and choose from the following: garden, pond study, chickens and embryology, goats, vermicomposting and wagon ride as you travel the 'nutrient trail' and explore the big question - how are all the creatures and plants on the farm connected? Experience the transfer of matter and energy as you question, hypothesize, analyze data, conclude and question again. Close the nutrient loop of producers to consumers to decomposers.
