Week 2 Camp: Garden Explorers

Today marks the end of our second week of summer camp! It was a small group of campers this week, so we all worked together in one group. Each day we focused on a different theme that connected different areas of the farm to each other. One day was soil and compost, another bugs and pest, and another the life cycle of plants. Alannah and Autumn led the group together and included lots of exciting recipes this week. They made squash pancakes, a salad,  and pickles, to name a few. From learning about the importance of growing conditions to seeing the different elements in soil, it was another great week with young farmers on the farm. We are so glad we get to share our farm with children who are eager to learn.
