Overview

June 24th - 28th, 9:00 - 3:00 pm
Rising 1st graders through 6th graders

Week in the Life of a Gardener” camp focuses on our food system, using our beautiful Garden as a classroom. Each day holds opportunities for learning, art, physical activity, gardening, and food preparation. We will learn about sustainable agricultural models, regenerative soil practices, and local food systems. We will understand the history of gardening in the U.S.A., such as Victory Gardens and how gardening became seen as a form of patriotism. We will spend our time planting in our own Victory garden bed and cooking in our outdoor kitchen. We will explore demonstration beds in the center of the Garden, helping with the weekly harvest for the Food Farmacy. Campers will have hands-on experiences to help understand the importance of growing and preparing their own food.

El campamento “Una Semana en La Vida de un Jardinero” será un enfoque en nuestro sistema de alimentación, usando nuestro lindo jardín como el aula. Cada día tendrá oportunidades para aprender, arte,  movimiento físico, jardinería, y preparación de comida. Aprenderemos sobre modelos agrícolas sostenibles,  sistemas alimentarios locales, y prácticas regenerativas para la tierra, utilizando nuestras camas de jardín. Participaremos ayudando a llenar nuestras canastas CSA semanales, que donamos a los miembros de la comunidad.
