[ARCHIVED] Opening Ocotber 12th

centennial farm exhibit

We are so excited to share that our newest permanent exhibit is opening October 12, 2021!  Join us starting at 10am!

Our newest exhibit is housed in the former Pre-School Playpark gallery.
Centennial Farm is a place where visitors big and small can learn about food production, plant and animal life cycles, and the farm-to-table connection in order to make healthy choices about food and exercise. By inviting visitors to have a hands-on interaction with farm and food cycle exhibit elements, Centennial Farm will bring a greater understanding of our food supply chain, food source origins, farm life style, healthy food choices and the value of healthy play. The gallery will represent a kid friendly farm scene from the early 1920s, with a farm house, barn, tractor shed, chicken coop, bee hive, citrus and avocado orchard, farm stand, pond, garden, climbing tree and various animals. Centennial Farm is also a wonderful opportunity for celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of La Habra and helping visitors understand the community and lifestyle of one hundred years ago. Part of the design will incorporate details which denote the agricultural history of the City of La Habra, and the historic Hispanic demographic of the area. Built into each section will be enriching elements to foster child development, with the target audience at ages toddler to 6 years. Informational graphics in each section will be in both English and Spanish.
