Another growing season is upon us at Farm Discovery and as we begin to prep our fields and garden, we get an extra thrill out of imagining all the fun that will be had in them during our summer farm camp! With so many things feeling out of control these days, we take solace in the dependable joy that comes from children enjoying the great outdoors by learning and playing together, all while connecting with nature and their food.
Farm Camp 2021 Registration is Live! Due to the continuation of COVID 19 restrictions, we will be sticking with the one-month, small group model from last year. This gives families a more stable child care option. Each session will be full of adventures on the farm with hands-on activities in farming, art, cooking and wild crafting (plant ID, fire building, shelter building and more!) as well as hikes around our 150-acre organic farm.
For older kids, we are also offering a Leader in Training program that empowers youth through leadership skill building, job training and mentorship from our staff. For more information, contact our Education Director, Lucie, at firstname.lastname@example.org

“This is my son’s second year attending Farm Discovery and I find it that he comes out with so much more confidence in himself. When he sees me eat what he brings it gives him so much joy. When he sees me use the things he makes, it makes him stop in his tracks and say ‘you’re using my salt, thanks mamma.’ He feels important and empowered,” Jackie Barbosa.
