Peace Rose offers its student a unique outdoor learning experience. Our property sits on an acre of land and boasts a beautiful forest full of nature to observe, a creek teeming with life, an organic fruit and vegetable garden, and a burgeoning farm program.
We are proud to offer:
* A hands-on animal experience! Thanks to our many chickens and two rabbits, we offer students a unique opportunity to care for animals on a day to day basis. Through animal studies the students learn compassion and responsibility. In the classroom, we have birds and fish and will often host reptiles and amphibians.
* An environmentally responsible waste management system. We carefully divide our waste into categories- composting, bunny food, chick food, recycling, and trash. Thanks to this system we are sending less than a bag of trash each month to the landfill.
* Our organic fruit and vegetable garden. We are excited to offer a fruit and vegetable garden that is 100% organic, heirloom, and GMO free. As it grows, our garden will feed our animals and our community thanks to our donation-based farm stand available at the front desk and an outdoor cart during some afternoons. This entrepreneurial venture allows our students to become invested in the future of the farm.
* Outdoor Classroom. Wilmington's temperate climate allows us to offer our students a year-round outdoor experience. On a daily basis we enjoy the outdoors with over an hour of outdoor play and exploration. Our students are well equipped with gear for rainy weather and full sun, we enjoy outdoor learning in all seasons!
