Spend a Season or a Whole Year With Us!
The garden is bursting with life in the springtime! Children help create an organic garden, prepare the soil for planting, learn about seeds and how-to plant them. Over the course of the season, the children excitedly observe the seedlings turn into vibrant plants, herbs and flowers. As they harvest their bounty each week, we create delicious, simple meals and snacks that get thumbs up. Watch their eyes light up as they smell, taste, and truly experience locally grown, seasonal produce from their own garden.
In the summer, the Barn is an exciting and vibrant place to be for children (and the grown-ups who love them). Edible plants are growing rapidly, and need a lot of care, maintenance and nurturing. In our organic teaching garden, the children learn all about bugs – did you know that some insects are good for the garden, and some bugs are not good? They take exciting nature walks and learn to identify different types of plants and animals found in their natural habitats. And of course, we cook with fresh, seasonal produce harvested daily for our garden-to-table camps and Summer Seedlings.
