Our Yurt Program

By Stowel Lake Farm

IMG_2352IMG_2454IMG_2356Big News! A group of farm and island parents have come together to hold a distributed learning program on the farm this year! It is affiliated with a program called Island Discoveries out of Vancouver. We have 15 children participating the program ranging from K-Grade 3. We are thrilled to have the support of Amy Caesar, who is a registered BC teacher. Amy is passionate about play based learning and integrating the farm’s natural learning environment into the children’s learning plans. We also have many mentors and parents who come regularly to take whoever is there. The group is made up of many ‘farm’ children as well as many ‘off farm’ children. It is wonderful to see them all out on the farm learning about the forest as well as writing in their daily journals. Here are a few pictures from the first few weeks. Enjoy!
