Coverdale Farm is a dynamic living ecosystem that rebuilds, replenishes, and respects its natural resources while raising nutrient-dense food for our community.  Our unique product of farm-based education engages all ages in the wonder of regenerative agriculture from soil to stomach.  During this delicious adventure you will step into the boots of a farmer.  Move 200 hens across their pasture without lifting a finger.  Collect their beautiful and nutritious eggs in rainbow shades of cream to green to blue.  Hike to hives to see thousands of honeybees pollinating our gardens.  Crawl through a caterpillar tunnel to see the growing summer’s bounty.  Find our furry four-legged land management staff to find out how their work enriches the soil and keeps invasive plant species at bay.  Along the way we will share our favorite teachable moments with you from farm to classroom.

Three years ago, the University of Delaware Lab School expanded its programming to include a Nature Preschool program. We developed several outdoor learning areas, trails, a creek beach entrance, a bird blind, and many other areas for children to connect to nature. All of our programs encourage children to explore, take healthy risks, and create a love for the great outdoors. In addition to working with young children and families, we work with pre-service undergraduate and graduate students as well as in-service teachers. We would love for you to come and see for yourself all that the UD Lab School has to offer. We are certain you will take things away that you can absolutely apply to your own programs.
