Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Oct. 1, Montgomery: E.A.T. South Field Trip

Oct. 1
E.A.T. South Tour

This trip is a new place in Montgomery that looks like a great spot for kids. It is an urban farm which caters to K-5th grade students to teach them where our food comes from and a bit about farming practices. Below is the description for our tour.

This is a comprehensive food education field trip program taught at the Downtown Farm. A children’s garden will be completed in 2013 to provide the perfect platform for connecting children from all over Alabama with healthy fresh food. Students explore the farm and help harvest fresh produce. The students then help prepare that food into a healthy snack or lunch on the farm. Finally, students learn why eating fresh, healthy seasonal food is so important for productive life.

The kids will get to harvest and taste food directly from our garden, as well as interact with the chickens, plant seeds, and more. The Downtown farm has a full garden, production raised beds, a refurbished caboose office, and a working windmill, and really lives up to being an "urban farm". 

We can also recommend some great places to eat in the Auburn-Opelika area that embody local and sustainable agriculture and cuisine.
