Sweet Olive Farm Animal Rescue conducts a number of activities relating to animal welfare and rescue for the surrounding community and school age children.
School groups, such as Arrow School, and New Moon Montessori School, Atlas Agile Learning Center, Clarke County School Systems, Bear Hollow Zoo, as well as homeschoolers in the Athens area community, along with parents and teachers, come for the experience of meeting the animals, and to learn about the care and feeding of exotic creatures and farm animals.
Students learn how the animals came to be here, why they are not good pets, and what can be done to support the activities at Sweet Olive Farm Animal Rescue. Long 30 foot tables provide seating for children and adults for talks, art projects, and presentations. Many local businesses, such as Treehouse Kid and Craft, Recipe for Success, and Hable Construction, use our barn as a place to bring interns and employees for team building.
We believe that these activities bring further social knowledge to our community. At Sweet Olive Farm Animal Rescue, we are happy to encourage social responsibility for the welfare of animals through our partnering with educators and businesses.
