How do plants and animals depend on their parts and on other living things to help them survive? Let's follow the nutrient trail of consumers, producers, and decomposers as we meet our goats, chickens, and red wiggler friends, the worms! Visiting the garden, greenhouse, orchard, and animal barn, students will investigate how plants depend on animals and insects for their survival and how the energy of the sun and nutrients travel through the nutrient cycle. Students will interact with Tollgate Farm staff as they  question, hypothesize, experiment, analyze data, conclude and question again through hands-on STEAM challenges. Designed for learners in grades 3-5.

 Cost: $ 40 first youth participant, $25 additional youth Grades 3-5 in family
Cancellation fee of $15 after October 1.
A link to join interactive sessions will be sent to registrants before the series begins.
