This is for educators wishing to bring students on a FREE field trip that meets Pennsylvania standards for health, science and the environment. Programs for school-aged youth are held at both the Deaver Wellness Farm and the Deaver Health Education Center.
The Deaver Health Education Center (HEC) was designed to promote health and well-being, while at the same time instilling an appreciation of the incredible human body. With eye-popping displays and sophisticated audio visual technology the HEC offers children the chance to learn about themselves in four vitally important areas: general health, food and nutrition, drugs and alcohol, and family life. Information is presented in a factual and non-judgmental manner.
A joint initiative between Lankenau Medical Center and Greener Partners, the Deaver Wellness Farm offers school-aged youth and adults a unique hands-on farm to table education. This living outdoor classroom connects learners to the source of healthy food, promotes healthy eating, and investigates the science behind agriculture.
