Workshops at Chenoa

As a learning facility, we offer a variety of public programs throughout the year. Check out our upcoming offerings ​here​.

Private workshops are also available for groups of 3 or more, with a donation of $75/per person. Our custom workshops give visitors the unique opportunity to have our space to themselves while they learn more about the ins and outs of an animal sanctuary.

What to Expect

Workshops begin at 10am and conclude at approximately 2pm, with a plant-based lunch included. While every workshop is different, each will include seasonal activities centered around our three core pillars: animals, horticulture & art.

Possible tasks may include:

  • Animal husbandry tasks
  • Stall and barn cleaning
  • Maintenance of flower, herb and vegetable gardens
  • Removal and control of invasive plant species
  • Minor building maintenance and painting
  • Hands-on craft projects

Keep in Mind…

Please keep in mind that you will be helping at a working farm, so here are a few hints to make your time at the farm as enjoyable as possible:

Leave the peep toe wedges at home:
Chances are good you will step in manure during your visit (and even if you don’t, the ground is uneven and muddy), so we recommend closed-toe, sturdy footwear.

Check the weather forecast:​
There is always work to be done at the farm (even in the rain), so please dress appropriately and know that you might get wet. It is a good idea to bring a change of clothes, just in case.

Come prepared:
If possible, please bring a pair of work gloves to use while on-site.

Sheep don’t eat Cheetos:
​We ask that you keep any food in your car, so the animals cannot eat it. If you’d like to bring a snack to share with the Chenoa residents, then we encourage you to bring fresh produce or greens.
