Calling all curious, inquisitive, scientific nature kids! The farm is bustling with life microscopic and macroscopic and we need your vibrant minds to investigate. How do you preserve food to last all winter? How do you make medicine from plants?  What do plants need to grow? We’ll answer these questions and more! In between experiments we’ll have plenty of time to run and play games with our friends, and eat delicious food grown at the farm!

(entering 3rd grade – completed 6th grade)

August 18th – 22nd ~ 9am – 3pm
With so much delicious food growing on the farm what could be better than cooking up food and eating it with your friends? Each day we’ll have time to care for and harvest vegetables, and then learn how to make delicious culinary delights with the ingredients. At the end of the week we’ll invite our camp families to taste the foods we’ve learned to make during the week!
