Morning Glory Homestead
Virtual Farm2School Visits
Teachers, we have offered virtual farm visits and information about our farm for three years, through videos and photographs made available via email, Facebook Live, YouTube and Instagram.
We would like for you and your students to meet our animals and have virtual visits of our farm throughout the school year.
You can receive fun and informative emails to allow you and your students an opportunity meet and greet the animals. See photographs and information bytes about them; their breed, habits, births, hatchlings and more. We’ll also share what’s “growing on”, with updates about what we have planted or plan to plant, when it’s available and offer tastings.
We’re calling these Morning Glory Monday’s and Farm Friend Fridays! Monday’s will show the plant life and Friday’s the animal life.
In addition to this we have a portion of our field dedicated to the life and work of Dr. George Washington Carver. It features plants that he taught and experimented on as well as shows methods he used for healthy farming. We have pumpkins, corn, sunflowers, peanuts, sweet potatoes, field peas, collards and other greens. A lesson with activity sheets is also available. There will be contests and competitions with other classes wherever they are located. The 'Web' is the limit! Teachers may schedule visits to the farm for classes to see the animals and Dr. Carver plot in person and participate in on-site activities. Contact us to request more information.
