Let your children learn about what seeds need to grow and then PLANT their own seed to take home! Each child will be given a plastic glove to put dirt in, plant a seed inside, and then water their seed! Each child can take their “Garden in a Glove” home with them. (Gloves are tied for easy transportation without a mess!)
* Additional Corn Box!
A favorite for everyone at Washington Farms- we now have TWO corn boxes! We will have a 2nd Corn Box open for our field trips this spring!

Let your kids practice their skills at basketball, football, baseball & soccer! Lots of fun for all ages!

Children can race rubber ducks by pumping water to push the ducks to their friends at the other end!
* Hippity Hops!
Bouncy balls with handles for kids to jump and play on!
Each student will take home a BROCHURE with pictures and information about other FUN EVENTS at Washington Farms, and a COUPON to return to the farm one weekend with their family!

Things to Remember
1. Make sure the time, date, and location of your field trip is clearly communicated to all teachers, bus drivers, and parents. IMPORTANT NOTE: Our LOGANVILLE Farm is closed. We ONLY have our Bogart farm open spring 2020 for field trips! Make sure that all of your parents & chaperones know which farm to go to!
2. Have an accurate head count of all students before arriving at the farm.
3. ALL Field Trip activities & area will CLOSE at 1pm.
What to Bring
1. Sharpies (2-3 per class) to write each child’s name on their garden in a glove, if you choose to do that activity! You may also bring pre-printed labels if you prefer.
3. Baby wipes / hand sanitizer
4. Water bottles or other drinks
5. Box or cate to take their Gardens in a Glove home in!
6. Lunch or Snack
7. First aid kit, Benadryl and/or anti-itch cream, sunscreen, etc.
> Dress appropriately for a day on the farm – tennis shoes, jackets and long pants if needed, etc.
> We have full service restrooms with a changing table available.
> It’s a great idea to have each class wear a different color shirt. This helps us visually locate a class if someone arrives late.
> Name tags with the child’s school and a teacher’s phone number. If the child get’s separated from the group, we can easily contact the teacher and reunite them with the class.
If rain is predicted, you have a couple of options.
We recommend waiting until the morning of the field trip to make a decision about whether or not to come. So often, the forecast is incorrect and the rain may hold off until after the field trip. If it still looks like it may rain that morning, you can call us (as early as 6:00am) to cancel or reschedule. If we feel that it would be best not to do the field trip due to weather conditions, we will contact you as soon as possible.
We understand that sometimes waiting until the last minute is not an option. You can cancel or reschedule if you feel necessary based on the weather forecast. If this is the case, please call us to let us know of your decision so we can try to find a day and time to reschedule.
