“If we choose healthy food there is a reciprocation. Not only (do) we feel better (and) are healthier, but the Earth is healthier.”

The Cornucopia Project Educational Farm is located within walking distance to over one thousand students in grades five through twelve. The farm is easily accesible directly off of NH Route 202. Vegetables, herbs and flowers fill two acres and three high tunnels, supported by a quarter acre of native pollinator plant habitat.
Here, student farmers grow food for their school cafeterias, a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), local restaurants and donation to the local food pantry. Field trips, internships and community workshops are offered throughout the growing season.
Summer Young Farmers Program
Farm work, place-based art projects and culinary explorations! Your child can grow, eat and explore with Cornucopia Project. Choose from three sessions, or join us for the whole program and enjoy the farm as it grows throughout the season.
Learn from experienced herbalist, Katherine Gekas of Deerpath Herbals. On Wednesday mornings in July we’ll take a morning medicinal herb walk through the pollinator habitat at Cornucopia Project’s Educational Farm in Peterborough.
We’ll help you develop horticultural knowledge of regenerative and organic farming practices while producing nourishing produce. You’ll explore your own interests and gain new skills while making a positive impact on community health.
Student farmers may be eligible for high school or college credit. This is a paid work/study position. Request more information right here.
Bring your classroom, camp or club to the farm! We provide subject-based exploration, project facilitation and farm tours to youth groups.
Contact us for more information or to plan your visit. Scholarship funds are available and all student groups are welcome.
