School Programs & Tours

Steckle Heritage Farm offers educators the opportunity to enrich and expand their curriculum in a hands-on and experiential learning environment. We offer programs for preschool through Grade 6 on a seasonal basis.

 

NEW! Growing Great Greens

In our Farm-to-Classroom program, we loan an in-class ‘garden’ to you for 1 month in March or April, then your class visits us in May or June.

A full circle learning opportunity. Learn more about our two-way educational stream!
