Southlands Heritage Farm

This Tuesday (October 25th), we will be heading to the Southlands Heritage Farm to pick pumpkins, play with the farm animals, and learn about where our food comes from!

Please see the video below to learn more about the farm and catch a glimpse of what we will be doing on Tuesday. It is sure to be a great day!

Please remember to bring the following items on Tuesday:

  • packed lunch (including students on the Hot Lunch program)
  • A snack (for after we return from the farm)
  • Rubbers boots and warm, old clothing
  • A bag for the pumpkin, clearly labeled with your child’s name (cloth/biodegradable bags preferred as last year we had many plastic bags break!)

Other information:

  • Students will be expected to carry their own pumpkins back to the school
  • Please make sure your child is wearing old clothing as the farm can get extremely muddy
  • Rubber boots are required (even if the weather is sunny)
