Field Trip to MSU Extension Tollgate Education Center and Farm

Description:

Carpool 4 miles to MSU’s Tollgate Farm to learn how MSU Extension Outreach Programs can support your educational goals with experiential, educational programs and field trips for your students that connect to the curriculum in your classroom. You will tour the growing school gardens & greenhouse, the sugar shack where the students and volunteers make maple syrup, and learn about youth development programs, community food systems education, and agriculture and natural resources. Using research-based curriculum and methods, Tollgate promotes food system awareness through exploring the sustainable, nutritional, and cultural aspects of agriculture. The field trip takes place on both Friday (3-hour session) and Saturday (2-hour session), so you can choose the day that works best for you. Cost is $10 and requires pre-registration. We suggest that you wear farm appropriate footwear if possible. Meet at the seating area in the lobby across from the Sapphire ballroom at 1:00 pm.
