Another Season of Grass Stain Tours
avatar

One of my favorite parts about working at Polyface is getting to guide Grass Stain Tours. These farm tours are specifically designed for kids from kindergarten through high school. We’ve had everything from home school groups to girl scout troops to A.P. Human Biology classes, and I love sharing the farm with them. I always get asked great questions, and always end up learning something too!

We’re starting to take reservations for the upcoming spring season. If you or someone you know is interested, check out more information here!

About Brie Aronson

Brie Aronson came to Polyface from southern California. During college, she was diagnosed with food allergies and had to begin asking about the source of every single thing she put in her mouth. This led to an interest in all things food and she sought out a way to learn how it can be produced ethically and sustainably. Her desire is to help people shift their focus from counting calories, being intimidated by their kitchens, and being disconnected from the land to one that experiences the life-giving enjoyment of food. Having completed the internship in summer 2010, she now assists with the buying clubs and sales building, leads school tours of the farm, and will be the summer 2012 farm cook.

  1. Oh, if we only lived closer. Michigan is a bit far to travel from for a homeschool tour, especially since we want to start our own flock of chickens this spring.

    One day I’m going to get over to the USA and take one of your tours, I’m in England, UK and have read many of Joel’s books and have been inspired his writings. Keep up the good work and this great blog from a Fan many, many miles away!

  3. I actually wrote a piece on one of my blogs called “Teaching Your Kids About Earth’s electronic Network”

    The problem with most kids now days is they are being raised like Cyborgs with all manner of electrical devices connected to their heads. They have no clue about the outdoors. When I grew up indoors was not the place to be.

    Some of the links at the end of that blog are even good for adults who may not understand the Microbial Zoo.
