Living here in South Alabama, it is difficult to believe that children have become so disconnected from nature. The fact that nature is the source of our food is hidden by cans, boxes, and wrappers.
The connection that each of us have to nature is a basic part of reality and should be a part of our curriculum. The best way to make this connection is a hands-on experience. Like the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words, but one experience is worth a thousand pictures.”
The Partridge Plantation provides a clean and real-life experience. With three educational stations and two hands-on stations, the children will learn a new appreciation of life, animals, and the connection between the two.
We invite you to our farm. Our pledge is to make this your best field trip ever!
