Each  session will be full of adventures on the farm with hands-on activities in farming, art and cooking as well as hikes around our 150-acre organic farm.

SCROLL DOWN FOR A SAMPLE SCHEDULE 

Campers can expect to get their hands dirty while exploring pieces of Live Earth’s 150 acres in both organic vegetable row crop production and fruit orchards. In addition to learning about life as an organic vegetable farmer, campers will spend time getting to know our herd of goats, our milking cow, Bella, and visit with the chickens. Campers will assist in daily chores of our animals, while learning about the benefits of humane livestock management.

CAMP THEMES

Farm to Table

Learning about farming, food preparation and preservation through hands-on activities in our fields, Discovery Garden, and kitchen classroom. Kids who love food or never let a leafy green cross their lips will both enjoy exploring the processes of creating healthy and tasty meals beginning with a seed.

Art on the Farm

Explore the wonders of nature through farming and artistic expression. Activities may include printing from natural materials, musical instrument making, working in the education demonstration garden, cheese making, felting and so much more! Each day we will harvest something from the garden to contribute to our sustainable picnic lunches!
