Little Hands, Big Impact
The kids of Cimarron get their hands dirty during our weekly youth program! We offer an exciting, hands-on environment for the kids of Cimarron Park. Participants spend the summer planting and harvesting, cooking with vegetables from the farm, creating art, and developing experiments. At the end of each day, they are excited to bring home their newfound skills as well as plenty of fresh produce.
If you live in the neighborhood and your child or teen would be interested in this exciting summer program, contact us for more information!
Our Youth Program Coordinator
Abigail Speller is our youth program coordinator at Cimarron Community Farm. Abbie has a background in business as well as years of experience in nannying. After helping to lead the Dementia Garden at Mankato State she decided to combine all of her skills and put them to use here at the farm. Abbie excels at connecting with participants, incorporating hands-on experiences, getting creative with produce in the garden, and adapting programming to the interests of youth in the program. This summer she focused on facilitating engaging lessons and games about pollinators, compost, fungi, and much more.
