It's camp season here at Life Lab, and like these fresh-picked beets, it's been big! More than 300 children from 4 to 18 years old are part of our Garden Sprouts and Wildlands & Watering Cans day camps this season at our Garden Classroom, either as campers or as part of our OWLS and EAGLES leadership programs for older youth to work with our staff to host the programs.
With two weeks of active, healthy, inspiring fun in the garden, on the farm and in the surrounding meadows and woods, children can connect deeply with nature and each other, learn where food comes from, and enjoy healthful snacks they make together each day. We love the joy and energy they bring to our garden each day in summer!
Camp is sooooo big this year, it deserves a second photo this month! Here you go:
No, potatoes do not fall from the sky! Our campers can tell you that after having fun digging farm potatoes for their Friday "farmers market" in our garden for their parents.
We hope you're having a fun and healthy summer, too!
