Sager Family Farm encourages children to develop a love for learning, curiosity about the natural world, and to apply project-based lessons to real world applications. Our elementary school lessons bring learning to life and spark interest in STEAM fields through hands-on, engaging activities.
Our farm is designed to provide "reverse field-trips" where we bring the critters into the classroom. It is actually much easier to get 5,000 bees in a box than 24 children onto a bus, especially when you take into account the cost, chaperones, transportation, loss of instructional time, and permission slips required for a traditional field trip. This model allows us to provide more equitable access to formative, hands-on experiences.
Since the founding of SFF in 2015, BBAB has visited a total of 350 classrooms and presented to approximately 8208 students.
Thanks to the generous support of our partners, we're able to provide our program throughout California in the San Francisco Bay Area, Greater Los Angeles Area, and San Diego County.
