Education is an important component in supporting the mission of Red Hill Farm. Joanne Rosenbaum, our farm education coordinator, is responsible for developing and organizing member education, events, and community outreach, including farm tours.

Jo with DNA Class2Partnering with Drexel Neumann Academy

Red Hill Farm has partnered with Drexel Neumann Academy’s third-grade class for a farm-to-school program. The children are taught the basics of food nutrition as well as the science related to farming and caring for the land. The students also visit the farm several times through the growing season.

Additionally, a cooking class has been introduced to the sixth-grade class. The students are taught the importance of nutrition, healthy eating, and basic cooking skills.

Our goal is to inspire students and members of all ages to experience fresh, local, and healthy food.
