Drop-In Classes

From time to time we offer single drop-in versions of our classes. Take advantage of this opportunity to try a class and see our facilities before registering for a full session. Or if you're already a member of the Loblolly family, come back for more nature-based fun between sessions! 

Upcoming Dates:

"Green Friday" Family Forest Day

Avoid the chaos in the stores and opt for some rejuvenating time outside instead! Join us for a morning of nature-filled play on the farm and in the forest. Visit our favorite play spaces, listen to stories, sing along with our favorite songs, help us create some "wandering" nature art, and enjoy some family time in the fresh air. While the program is geared for preschool-aged children all ages are welcome to attend. Event is rain or shine, and we are unable to offer refunds for cancellations. Thank you!

Winter Faire and Children's Market

Friday, December 19

9:30am - 12:30 pm

Growing Minds Educational Farm

Join us for a special event celebrating the coming Winter Solstice AND have an opportunity to do a little last-minute shopping! Take a walk through our forest classroom and visit our favorite nature play spaces as we learn about what makes the winter solstice so unique through songs, stories, and interactions with the local flora and fauna. Then visit the Loblolly Market where kids can "purchase" nature creations using special Forest Tokens, and you can purchase handmade, eco-friendly items made by our very own Forest School students alongside some farm-fresh goodies from Farmer Katie. Every participant will go home with a special gift from the forest! As always come dressed to get messy! Event is rain or shine, and we are unable to offer refunds for cancellations. Thank you!
