Each Year the 5th grade classes have a wonderful opportunity to attend a 2 night and 3 day field trip to Hard Bargain Farm. This year’s trip did not disappoint from milking cows, to learning about our local ecosystem and enjoying an outdoor fire, our kids learned so much AND had a great time. A big thank you to our 5th grade teachers Mr. Golland and Mr Dingledine and our fearless parent volunteers for your time and help! Thanks to the Ferguson Foundation students attend at no cost! Hard Bargain Farm Environmental Center’s education program for elementary and middle school students is designed to promote understanding and stewardship of the natural resources in the Potomac River watershed and the legacy of farming in southern Maryland. Courses at Hard Bargain Farm immerse students in various field studies involving fun and innovative hands-on activities and field investigations designed to engage all learning styles.
