About this event

Join us for an exploration of the Merry Lea Teaching Farm orchard, a unique edible ecosystem you can taste! See how humans and nature help apples grow by companion planting, encouraging pollination, and protecting the trees. Then we’ll press apples into cider and enjoy a cup!

Expectations for participation & conduct:

• We expect all students to demonstrate respect for fellow students and teachers at Merry Lea.
• Outdoor education involves exposure to some natural hazards like trips and falls, insect bites and stings and irritating plants. Merry Lea educators try to minimize these risks. It is imperative that students listen to directions in order to maintain safety out on the trails and inside the facilities.
