This popular program is a terrific introduction to the great variety of sites and activities in the barnyard. We sing songs and sow seeds. Children help feed the animals, visit the education garden, explore the woods, create take-home projects and see first-hand the many barns and buildings on the Farm. There are plenty of things new and familiar for these first time farmers. We offer morning sessions to better meet the needs of families, the young campers, and to maximize the learning experience.
“Oh wow, look at that worm!” said the curious 3 year-old who was elbows deep in the compost pile. On compost day, the kids mucked the stall, collected vegetable and fruit scraps, marched in a poop parade, met Walter the worm and spread finished compost in the garden to feed the plants. Many took home a jar of their finished compost. What a day for the Baby Spinach kids, who were knighted compost kings and queens.
