In an earlier post, we mentioned farm field trips and the gardens at Wave Hill. Here is more detail about educational farming opportunities at historic houses:

Located in Washington Heights, Manhattan, the Morris-Jumel Mansion offers “Garden with History,”  for grades K-12, which teaches students why a colonial home would need its own garden and includes a hands-on activity in the garden.

The Dyckman Farm House, in Inwood, Manhattan, features a program called “Day at the Farmhouse: Seasons on the Farm.” This activity is suggested for grades 3-6 and covers spring planting at the farmhouse. (That program is only available from April to September.)
