WE’RE HIRING! K-8 ASSISTANT FARM MANAGER

CAMP GROW 2024

SPRING CAMP: PLANT POWER!

Campers will explore the powerful world of plants through inquiry and experimentation. Campers will actively engage with the farm, investigating how plants are used in art, design, medicine, and beyond! Campers should show up curious, ready to learn and have fun, and expect to get their hands (and feet and knees!) dirty.

SUMMER: PLANT TO PLATE

Explore the journey of a seed, from the moment it’s planted in the ground to the minute it enters your kitchen as a fruit or vegetable! Campers will learn gardening skills, like sowing and harvesting, as they care for the crops on the Teaching Farm while also building culinary skills by creating fun, seasonal snacks in the Culinary Studio each day.
