Farmhands is the education component of our work and serves youth, families, the community and emerging farmers and ranchers through the following education opportunities:

  • Summer Day Camps for Youth
  • Field Trips
  • Family Programs
  • Community/ Adult Education Programs
  • Apprenticeships
  • Internships

Farmhands curricula focuses on the art and skill of growing and raising food through the lens of both cultural history and current farming and ranching practices. All of our programs are grounded in hands-on learning opportunities and cultivate exploration, inquiry, direct experience and fun!  Program offerings are designed to meet participants’ interest and skill level, no matter what age, and collectively provide the awareness, understanding and agricultural skills to grow healthy, local food for a bountiful agricultural future.

Bring Farmhands to your community!

In addition to providing education programs at one of our partner sites in Chaffee County, Guidestone would love to bring our education programming to your school or community.  We have a variety of topics we can offer relating to farm, garden and ranch education through engaging, hands-on activities and lessons.  If you would like to learn more and bring US to YOU, please contact andrea@guidestonecolorado.org or call 719.239.0955
