If you need some help with your garden, enroll your budding green thumb in this five-day gardening and cooking camp. Kids will learn how to care for a plant from growing to harvesting, then they’ll take the day’s produce and make a healthy dish. As an added bonus, this camp features the “Farm to Table Program” hosted by Patti Green. The combined virtual and in-person program is approximately 75-90 minutes each day throughout the week, and it will be built into our daily camp schedule or you may participate in this portion virtually. We’ll participate in virtual field trips with local farmers and participate in hands-on cooking experiences highlighting local fresh seasonal ingredients. A little gardening here, a little cooking there, and your child will get experience in organic farming as well as how to prepare different types of vegetables. Don’t worry: There’s plenty of time for play inside Explore & More Museum, hikes around Canalside, games, arts and crafts, too. Sign them up for Farm to Fork Camp, and they’ll come back with an advanced palate and a thumb greener than yours. Think of it as an investment in your family’s mealtime future.
*Timeframes will be provided to pick up materials at the museum for virtual program.
