Real Food Farm offers Baltimore area teachers and students lots of ways to interact with the farm. We welcome school groups across the Baltimore region for field trip and service learning opportunities, providing a chance for hands on learning. We also host workshops and educational programs related to farming to aid those of all ages interested in urban farming.
Real Food Farm provides schools located near the farm with the unique opportunity to engage in a variety of on-farm programming for different age groups.
Real Food Farm offers a paid, semester-long high school internship for students in the Lake Clifton area. Interns work at the farm multiple times per week and are involved in the growing, harvesting, and selling of produce. Additionally, interns assist with volunteer days and learn about topics related to agriculture, food systems, and food justice. Real Food Farm’s internship is designed to teach job readiness, leadership, and farming skills.
We offer a one- to two-hour outdoor educational program to pre-K through 12th grade students, college students, and adults that includes a farm tour, food sampling, and an age-appropriate work project.
Real Food Farm welcomes groups of up to 25 for service learning projects at the farm. Service learning projects are 3 hours long and include an orientation and tour of the farm.
Working in collaboration with other programs, Real Food Farm is proud to provide opportunities for the community to get educated. A variety of workshops are held throughout the year focused on different topics for farmers.

We’re open to all ages!
We provide educational programming opportunities for adults and seniors to become involved here at Real Food Farm. Promoting volunteerism among seniors and other generations is something that we find important, and we hope to expand and engage seniors in our community. We are open to partnerships with senior centers and health centers to develop a bond and open doors to community engagement for people of all ages. We’re hoping to strengthen intergenerational ties between seniors and their families, friends, or caregivers by getting them all out on the farm together!
Volunteer Education Docent at Real Food Farm
Are you interested in supporting youth as they explore the food system? We’d love your help! Education Docents help with Real Food Farm’s two-hour field trips, engaging pre-schoolers to college students in tours of the farm. Field trips are generally scheduled for mornings (9-11 am) or afternoons (1-3 pm) on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, although this can vary depending on the group’s availability. As a docent, you’ll receive training on all tour stops around the farm and be added to an outreach list of people willing to commit to helping with upcoming field trips; docents are asked to assist with at least one field trip per month. Note that all adults working with youth at Real Food Farm must undergo background checks. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
