Adult Education Programs

Participants create wreaths during workshop with Ferriss Donham (Rebekah Carter 2016)Wright-Locke Farm’s education programs for teens and adults are a great way to learn practical skills related to healthy living, small-scale agriculture, and the wonders of nature. All workshops take place on the Farm or at Saint Eulalia’s Parish kitchen (50 Ridge Street- right down the street) and are open to individuals ages 14+ unless stated otherwise. We hope you can join us for one or more workshops this growing season!
