Field Trip: Sylvia Center

We are excited to kick off our summer youth programming with the first of several field trips for tweens and teens. Our inaugural field trip will take place on Tuesday, June 27 at 11am for a visit to the Sylvia Center. Come, harvest, cook and eat from this local farm cooking program.

The Sylvia Center’s Fresh Food Comes From The Farm program is a “4-hour immersive program on Katchkie Farm, students walk like a farmer and think like a chef.  As they tour the farm and taste their way through the Learning Garden (which is home to over 200 different things to eat) we encourage students to try new foods and to think about how the fruits, vegetables, herbs, and even flowers they are tasting, could serve as an ingredient to a meal. Youth take part in every step of the story of food including planting seeds, pulling weeds, harvesting organic produce, and creating and sharing a meal together.”

Sign up now, Space is limited.  To register email : smcintosh@hudsonarealibray.org or call 518-828-1792 x 101 or stop by the front desk at Hudson Area Library. More information on other field trips will be released shortly.
