Garden, Nature, & Farm School

MST’s farm & garden program is a magical place where students come to learn about animal husbandry, nature, growing food and developing practical skills.

Early childhood is the ideal time to establish healthy eating habits. Our working garden creates activities that can increase children’s willingness to try new foods and help them become familiar with local foods.

Farm schooling provides hands-on agricultural and environmental learning experiences! MST offers our students the opportunity to be immersed in regenerative farming practices both through our farm animals and gardens. Children get to plant, harvest and care for animals in all different seasons. This fosters a deeper understanding of food production, sustainably, ecological processes, empathy growing and more.

There is a lot of research pointing to the positive aspects of nature-based or forest schools, including enhanced attention, self-confidence, interest in learning and physical development. 


Dr. Montessori's vision for schools was always a combination of indoor and outdoor classrooms to demonstrate the interconnectedness of all things. Children are able to study math and science, nature and the universe. 


“When children come into contact with nature, they reveal their strength.” 

- Dr. Maria Montessori

"We have had our son here for two and a half years and let me tell you, it was hands down one of the best decisions we’ve made! Leaving your little one with someone during the day is a difficult thing to do but when you leave him in good hands it takes the worry away. This school has adopted the Montessori principles beautifully. They truly know how to nurture children and foster curiosity, structure, academics, independence, empathy, and a love of learning. The teachers truly care about my son. He’s been exposed to different cultures, music, and art. Most importantly he’s been allowed to be a child! The communication from the staff is impeccable. I get videos and pictures as well as communication through the Procare app and our GroupMe. I don’t just hear from them when something needs to improve. I hear about all the sweet and silly things he does all day! Meals and snacks are nutritious wholesome foods which is important to me. We couldn’t ask for a more well rounded, loving, and nurturing environment for our son!"
