• Overview

    Terhune Orchards Read and Explore Program is a winter education series, following the popular seasonal Read and Pick Program. Enjoy fun on the farm in winter! Read & Explore combines hands-on activities with listening to a story. This hands-on educational program is a great cure for cabin fever and a way to stay connected to the farm during the winter months.

    Fur, Feathers & Fluff: Keeping Warm in Winter | Feb. 27 & Mar. 10 a.m.
    Learn about how animals keep themselves warm in winter. The group will read two stories about animals and explore the sense of touch with wool, feathers, etc. Each child will make a paper bag animal to take home with lots of “fluff.”

    Birds, Nesting & Birdhouses | Mar. 12 & Mar. 16, 10 a.m.
    Birds are starting to think about making homes for their babies. The group will read stories about birds. Each child will make a birdhouse and get some nesting material to take home.

    Getting Ready for Spring | Apr. 2 & Apr.6, 10 a.m.
    Get ready to wake up from winter and prepare to start gardening. As St. Patrick’s Day is the traditional day to plant peas and spinach and get the garden ready, the group will start gardens too! The reading is a selection from “Frog and Toad Are Friends.” Each child will plant seeds to take home.

    Composting | Apr. & Apr. 20, 10 a.m.
    Learn about turning “garbage” back into soil. The group will read stories about worms and compost. Each child will make a compost container to take home.
