Garden City Harvest offers educational field trips at the Garden City Harvest/EVST PEAS Farm for preschool, elementary, middle, and high school classes during the school year, as well as summer field trips to anyone interested in getting to know the PEAS Farm.

Seeing how food is grown first-hand entices students to explore connections between agriculture and their everyday lives, and gets them excited about healthy, nutritious food.

Visits to the PEAS Farm provide enriching experiences for students through experiential educational lessons and participation in everyday farm activities. Using the PEAS Farm as an outdoor classroom allows teachers and students to integrate concepts of science, math, art, history, and health in a real life context. Students can learn about many topics firsthand like life cycles, farm animals, ecology, local agricultural techniques and local history. These concepts are conveyed through hands-on tours and lessons on how big an acre is, how to make compost, the agricultural history of the Rattlesnake Valley, and much more.
