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. We host a variety of fundraisers each year that 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.


Annual Plant, Tomato, & Herb Sale

Fernbrook Farms’ wholesale nursery opens to the public with a wide assortment of trees, shrubs, and perennials– with many that are tough to find anywhere else!   We also have more than 65 varieties of heirloom tomato seedlings and over 30 varieties of fresh herbs and vegetables for sale 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! Join us for a day of fun on the farm!

2018 Dates: May 5th, 6th, 12th, & 13th!

Wreath Making

‘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 from Farmer Q, 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. We will have hot chocolate and attendees are welcome to bring other beverages and their own snacks.
