  • September – October 2017Field Trips for schools

Maple Hill Urban Farm is located in Ottawa’s Greenbelt. Every year in the fall, we offer field trips for a wide range of young audiences. Field trips provide an opportunity for children to learn first hand about a working farm and to discuss important social as well as ecological aspects of food production and animal husbandry in our area.

Our field trips consist of a brief introduction to the farm, followed by education stations throughout the 167-acre property plus a corn maze adventure walk where the children explore their way through the many twists and turns of the 10-acre labyrinth. 10 check points that feature previously arranged questions need to be found. Contact us for topics of the education program and prices.

Emails are the easiest way to contact us with any questions regarding our events. (maplehillurbanfarm@gmail.com)
