New Mettle Farms

New Mettle Farms is an urban farm based out of Modesto, CA providing engaging, urban agriculture and artisan education programs to families, schools, and libraries. We are pioneering learning adventures and developing opportunities that provide programs, courses, workshops, demos, and co-operative year round, for all ages that teach nourishing traditions and inspire creativity. Through our business we have identified educational needs for supportive programs that offer hands-on science opportunities that meet NGSS standards and open the opportunity to explore urban agriculture and science in innovative, relevant ways. Our programs include a local teaching garden and classroom, school docent service and traveling teacher presentations, and on & off-site urban agriculture and artisan education programs for children & adults. Our science programs cover topics ranging from physical and environmental sciences, to gardening, holistic nutrition, and the history of nourishing traditions for grades K-12. New Mettle Farms is currently working to assist several schools in their creation and maintenance of school gardens and hands-on agriculture science programs that enhance student access to STEAM education.
