We host a variety of fundraisers each year

FFEEC’s fundraisers are a great way to get outside and connect with Fernbrook Farms while supporting the important work we do to engage kids with nature. Help support our unique programs, care for our animals, expand facilities, provide scholarships and create unforgettable experiences for kids in nature.

Your support helps us achieve our mission of providing hands-on educational experiences for all young people by exploring the complex interconnectedness of our natural world.

Plant, Tomato, & Herb Sale

First 3 weekends in May!

Come support Fernbrook Farms Environmental Education Center during our annual Plant, Tomato, & Herb Sale.  Our wholesale nursery will be open to the public with a wide assortment of trees, shrubs, and perennials– some that are tough to find anywhere else!   We will also have over 65 varieties of heirloom and unusual tomato seedlings (all colors, sizes, and uses!) as well as a wide variety of herbs & veggie starts to beautify your home garden.  You can also visit the animals (including baby lambs, chicks, and goat kids) or take a hike on one of our many trails!  Stay a while and enjoy a beautiful spring day outside with family and friends after you pick up your plants.

Wreath Making

First Weekend in December!

‘Tis the season for decorating! Bring family and friends to Fernbrook Farms to learn Farmer Q’s famous craft of wreath making.  After a demonstration, we will enjoy a wagon ride (weather permitting) to clip an assortment of pines and hollies from around the farm, which will be used to craft our very own beautiful door or mantle decorations.
