Young farmers and gardeners have a unique opportunity to explore past and present farming practices on the historic Wyckoff Farm. Campers will learn about the plant life cycle from seed to harvest as well as the importance of composting and other green initiatives. Hands-on art projects and botanic investigations will allow campers to explore various aspects of plant life, from cultivated crops to free growing weeds. Each one-week session will culminate in a presentation of the campers' artistic and planted achievements, as well as food prepared by campers from the Wyckoff garden.
Ages 6-12 years old
