Green Chimneys Farm has a garden program which has two locations and different focuses:
The Educational School Garden on the Brewster campus plays an important role in the lives of Green Chimneys students.

Students are involved with the day-to-day operation of the farm and its retail operations including the farm stand and quaint Country Store. Vocational skills in bee keeping, maple syrup production, small machinery operation and customer service challenge the students all year long.
Interns have an opportunity to observe and participate in classes, facilitate 1:1 activities with individual students, and may explore independent projects that can enhance the garden program. Interns also guide therapeutic/recreational activities such as creating bees wax candles, mixing organic lotions, drying culinary herbs or preparing fresh chicken eggs for sale to the public. Interns in the horticulture area will be immersed in both educational and vocational aspect of horticulture, and participate in activities offered both on campus and at Boni-Bel organic garden.
