Located at Eden Village Camp's 248 acres, just an hour north of New York City, the Farm School Program empowers students to cultivate genuine lifelong connections to their food and to nature through innovative gardening, cooking, art, music, and wilderness experiences, all incorporating the natural rhythms of the Jewish calendar and holiday cycles.

On the farm, we learn about soil, seeds, compost, insects, animals, herbs, and fruit trees through the lense of Jewish traditions and cycles.   In the woods, we learn about trees and practice our navigation and safety skills, while learning to build primitive shelters, track animals, and identify wild edibles. Art projects include printmaking, plant sketching, making costumes and paper mache shofars, and tons more!
