Bring your School Group or Scout Troop

The Pfeiffer Center is pleased to offer custom programs for children from Pre-K through High School. Depending on your needs and interests, our Farm Educator will craft a program of one to three hours that will include explorations of plants and nature with garden tasks.

Neighbor to Neighbor

Neighbor to Neighbor is an afterschool program that runs for sixteen weeks of each school year. The program fosters community relationships between high schoolers from Green Meadow Waldorf School and a diverse population of students from a local public middle school. Pfeiffer Center gardener-educators empower the kids in Neighbor to Neighbor to bridge their diverse life experiences and build a sense of community through guided social and agricultural experiences. This program is a partnership between the Pfeiffer Center, Green Meadow Waldorf School, Chestnut Ridge Middle School, and The Nature Place.

Farm and Garden Days

Farm and Garden Days is a small, specialized, hands-on farm, garden and nature experience for children ages 5-13. Digging potatoes, picking peas, milking cows, visiting horses and honeybees, making pizza in an outdoor clay oven, and more — with plenty of time for swims, exploring nearby woods and streams, art activities, music and games.

Farm and Garden Days is a collaboration between The Nature Place and The Pfeiffer Center. Activities take place in the Pfeiffer Center’s biodynamic gardens and at neighboring Duryea Farm.
