Virtual Creative Composting

Description

Join our educators for a virtual tour of the Wyckoff Farm & Composting System. We will dig in and learn about the process of decomposition, play the compost sorting game, and explore our worm bin. Through fun hands-on activities students will learn the importance of sustainable practices to take back to the classroom and home!

Offered At

Wyckoff House Museum

The Wyckoff House Museum preserves, interprets, and operates New York City’s oldest building and it’s surrounding 1.5 acres of farmland. Through innovative educational and farm-based programs we build cultural and agricultural connections within our community, emphasizing immigration, family, food, and community through history. During field trips to the farmhouse, students learn about the history of the site through inquiry, exploration, and hands-on activities.

Check out our new virtual learning experiences and school-based programs. Currently we are offering three types of program options:

  • 45 minute virtual programs, offered via Zoom or Google Meet.
  • Socially-distanced in-person experiences at the museum for schools within walking distance.
  • In-person programs at your school facilitated by a Wyckoff Educator.

Contact programs@wyckoffmuseum.org to discuss how we can modify our program offerings to best serve your students.

We are in school district 18.
