Farmhouse Family Day Creative Composting

Sep 18, 11am - 3pm

Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum - 5816 Clarendon Road

Join us in giving back to the earth by composting food scraps and learning about different ways to keep our earth healthy.

Come explore the life cycle of the farm during our September Farmhouse Family Day, where we’ll be exploring compost and our worm bin. Families can help us turn the compost heap, bring compost to drop off, play the compost-sorting game, and do fun farm crafts. Stay for a tour of our historic house, a scavenger hunt, and plenty of outdoor toys and games.

Farmhouse Family Days are always free to the public and open to visitors of all ages. Family Day is from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., with the composting workshop beginning at 1:00 p.m.
