Practical Academics at it’s Best!

J Clarke Richardson SSWork Experience at Nova’s Ark doesn’t just start and finish on the days that our guests are here.  Students from the J.Clarke Richardson SS – Transition to Work Program were able to bring their time at the farm into their classroom by creating an amazing, interactive map of the Nova’s Ark property during their in-school sessions. These students and their support workers developed and created this practical and meaningful resource which can be used by many different program participants and visitors to our property.  

It’s not all work at Nova’s Ark…we work hard; but we also play hard.  It’s a great partnership!



 Nova’s Ark offers an opportunity for individuals with special needs to join our trained and confident youth leaders to explore the many interesting therapy animals and participate in indoor and outdoor activities during our Spring Camp (March 16 to 20, 2015). Register for a single day or for the whole week!

Program focus continues to be on social and communication skills through exploration, sensory stimulation and structured interactive activities.  There will be a heavy emphasis on weather appropriate outdoor physical activities.

Our 1st Fall Festival Celebration…

Fall Festival

What an absolutely beautiful day for our first Fall Festival.  On Sunday, November 30, our Youth Leadership Team planned and hosted this free event for our special guests.

The Team, along with many of our amazing Youth Volunteers, made sure that hot chocolate was flowing, marshmallows were roasting on a central bonfire, and piles of leaves were available to play in!   Maverick the pony provided many of our guests with wagon rides on a miraculously snow-free driveway and a variety of games and activities were offered throughout the afternoon.  

Such a wonderful and successful event…a great time was had by all who attended!
