  • Sundae School, Aug. 18 – Participants will learn to make ice cream from scratch and enjoy their own sundae.

Classes are available anytime between 10 a.m. and noon.

“Drop-in programs are fun and educational,” said Patty Kennedy, farm coordinator. “They are a great way to spend the morning at the Farm.”

Programs are appropriate for ages three and older.
