Field Trips and Group Visits

Hands-on garden, environmental, and nutrition education

Visit Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center to receive firsthand experience in our garden-based education. Our indoor-outdoor classroom and demonstration kitchen applies science-based environmental education lessons, hands-on gardening, and hands-on cooking to promote sustainable agriculture, healthy eating, and healthy living! These trips are intended for school groups, Scout Groups, Rotary/Kiwanis Clubs, nonprofits, executive retreats, and large family groups.

*Note: We are booked for field trip requests at this time. For more information, email Kelsey Pennington at
