Our first graders had a great time with Farmer Stan. They were so excited to plant their own Round the Clock garden. The parents even commented how engaging the trip was, as well as informative. And the match to the curriculum made it a great science-based trip.
Thanks Farmer Stan!

Hi Farmer Stan,
Farmer's Stan program is a little gem tucked away in Central Baltimore County. His plant and bee program ties nicely to BCPS's Bee and Engineer science unit. The children were fully engaged with planting all types of seeds in a sturdy container that the students were able to easily transport home even on a bus! In addition, Framer Stan and his knowledgeable partner, Farmer Wayne, shared and discussed how bees and plants are interdependent, as well as, how seeds are used in our daily lives for more than just food! We loved the energy these two men displayed as they shared their passion about farming with over 125 second graders! Thank you Framer Stan and Farmer Wayne!
Hope to see you next year! Take care Lisa (BCPS)
