Teaching others about small local farming and personal nutrition is one of our passions here at Eden's. We feel that education is important in helping people strive to live healthier more fully independent lives.
Bring your group to Eden's Garden CSA Farm for an educational farm tour experience and learn about sustainable farming/gardening, food preparation, farm animals' place on the farm, take a scenic walk to see our honey bees, and stay for a special extended unit on honey bees or earthworms (Extra unit optional.).
One of our farmers will guide you around the farm for an interactive tour. Get up close with chickens, roosters, sheep, livestock guard dogs and horses; observe a working farm with guided tour of the gardens, bee hives, chicken coops, and horse barn.
Pack a picnic lunch and eat under the old oak trees and enjoy an afternoon away from the city - just down the road.
$7-$10 student/tour sizes limited to 50 per group/day
Call for reservations - dates are limited
Groups hosted include;
Permaculture classes with instructor Dick Pierce from Austin

A gourmet dinner was prepared in the garden by 8 of DFW's top Chefs and paired with food from local farmers & sommelier using wine from organic/sustainable vineyards of the Northwest.
