About the event
Camp Facilitator: Ms. Caitlyn
Students will learn about the basics of starting an edible garden while cultivating their own vegetable seeds, herb plants, and more. Digging deeper, we learn where our food comes from and ways that plants can help nourish our body, mind, and soul. We will experiment with growing, harvesting, and making products with our harvested produce and herbs.
To celebrate the important role of birds, bees and bug during Pollinator week, each day will highlight a different pollinator and enjoy hands-on activities about their role in the ecosystem.
A week filled with gardening activities and educational food lessons with Ms. Caitlyn, our certified MTA Gardening teacher. Our campers will create their own Farm-to-Table recipes that will surprise you! Aprons & hats included.
