We offer tours and classes geared towards children ages 7 – 19.
Each 1-hour session starts with an intro that usually details the history or the importance of what participants are learning, questions and answers or quizzes which are then followed by hands-on activities and tastings (for food based classes). Finally we end with questions and answers. Children are encouraged to interact and be inquisitive.
These sessions are not only educational but fun too with hands on learning and life skills, teaching valuable knowledge and awareness.
All participant guardians must sign a ‘Waiver” form for liability and inform us of all/any allergies.

"My name is Zane Shalabi and I am 14 years and I have been going to the Urban Homestead since I was 4 years old. And in all of those years they have taught me how to grow and use my own food organically and sustainably. They have taught me about new plants and how to grow and use them. They showed me that you can use even the smallest piece of land to benefit my life. I have learned how to eat fruits and vegetables that I would have never tried had it not been for the Dervaes family. They have also taught me about animals that you can raise to also benefit our lives. Besides teaching me all about planting and eating sustainably, I feel that I have made life long friends with the Dervaes family.. I think they should spread their teachings to all schools, they are all wonderful and caring people and they have a lot of knowledge about nature to share with the world. "
