To our valued stakeholders,
As we continue to deal with the impact of COVID-19, we do have a number of programs running at reduced capacity. The therapeutic riding program is running a Fall session. The Community Participation program has seen some of its participants return and is ready to accommodate more. The Learning for Life program is continuing to connect with participants virtually twice/week and is offering two days of in-person programming/week as well. Our day visit program is welcoming groups of up to 20 individuals to come up to the Farm for scheduled visits. To book a visit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our mobile outreach program, Beyond the Farm Gate is available to book for outdoor visits to your facility. We are also entertaining requests for small, outdoor facility rentals. We are evaluating each on a case-by-case basis, so cannot guarantee that we will move forward with all requests, but please get in touch with us by emailing email@example.com if you are looking for an outdoor venue for your event.
Woven into the return of all of these programs are some new health and safety protocols. We have developed a set of hygiene procedures that must be followed by all staff, volunteers, and visitors in order to ensure everyone’s safety. These procedures include the need to wear masks when indoors (unless exempt under one of the conditions recognized by the Region), and the need for every visitor to the Farm to complete a series of screening questions each day before they leave their home to come to the Farm.
