Ag Program and Hands-On Learning
We believe that education is more than just learning information; it is also about knowing what to do with what we know, being able to learn on our own, and having the character traits necessary to live an impactful, meaningful, and fulfilled life. We believe the best way to achieve this is to make learning practical, relevant, and possible. Linda Vista is blessed with an extensive and rural campus, and it is our goal to develop these resources to further hands-on learning opportunities.
Each child at our school receives a plot of land as his/her personal "farm." Through ownership and stewardship of this farm, students learn lessons such as care taking, diligence, planning, resourcefulness, investment, etc.
We also have a Chicken Club where members have the opportunity to own and take care of their own chicken. On the days they do chicken duty, members can choose to either take the eggs home or sell them at our farm stand.
In the summer of 2023, we will be developing a portion of our property into a goat pasture to further a culture of wonder and excitement, to emphasize God's creation, and to provide opportunities for entrepreneurship.
We are working toward developing a quarter-acre of our campus into a Builders' Club makerspace, where students of all ages can use age-appropriate materials to dream, plan, and build with their hands.
