Aldermere offers program for homeschoolers
ROCKPORT (Sep 29): Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 1, from 2:30 to 4 p.m., Aldermere Farm will hold a six-week Farm Hands program for local youth who are homeschooled.
The program is for youth ages 11-18 who want to learn what it is like to work on a beef cattle farm. Participants will halter calves, learn about proper care and nutrition for the cattle, receive some showmanship skill training and do some afternoon chores, such as feeding. Farm Hands is a fun and educational program that has become very popular with youth in the local schools through the Community That Care STAR program, Youthlinks and the farm itself.
