Projects classes provide students with an opportunity to learn the fine and practical arts through hands-on work.  These classes meet for 90 minutes, twice weekly.  The Farm offers students three different learning opportunties through Projects classes which utilize Scattergood Farm.

Farm Project
Students in Farm Project spend extended time on the farm during each Project block working with the general up-keep of a fully functioning farm.  During class meetings, students might be found harvesting, planting seedlings, moving hay bales, repairing fences, tending to the greenhouse or logging information.

Animal Husbandry
Animal Husbandry Project records the farmwork done through drawings, photographs, and writing.  The artwork and writing is then used to create a bulletin board display, booklet, website, and/or newsletter article about springtime farm happenings.

During certain times of year, the class helps with maple sugaring (collecting sap and boiling it down over the fire), prairie burns and removal of invasive plants on the prairie, and in the spring, care of the new baby lambs and calves born on the Scattergood Farm.

Food Preservation Project
The Food Preservation class explores both ancient and modern methods of food preservation. Working with the harvests from Scattergood Farm, students preserve food for winter.  Students learn to dry and can tomatoes, freeze, dry and roast red peppers, dry and can apples as well as making applesauce, pickling cucumbers, storing winter squash, turning basil into pesto and perserving herbs.  The class also makes beef jerky from Scattergood beef and cheese from local milk.

Projects classes provide students with an opportunity to learn the fine and practical arts through hands-on work.  These classes meet for 90 minutes, twice weekly.  The Farm offers students three different learning opportunties through Projects classes which utilize Scattergood Farm.

Farm Project
Students in Farm Project spend extended time on the farm during each Project block working with the general up-keep of a fully functioning farm.  During class meetings, students might be found harvesting, planting seedlings, moving hay bales, repairing fences, tending to the greenhouse or logging information.

Animal Husbandry
Animal Husbandry Project records the farmwork done through drawings, photographs, and writing.  The artwork and writing is then used to create a bulletin board display, booklet, website, and/or newsletter article about springtime farm happenings.

During certain times of year, the class helps with maple sugaring (collecting sap and boiling it down over the fire), prairie burns and removal of invasive plants on the prairie, and in the spring, care of the new baby lambs and calves born on the Scattergood Farm.
