Eco-Discovery Camp

Roots and Shoots, Aug 2nd-6th for AGES 9-12

Let’s get our hands dirty and dive into the world of plants, pollinators, and farming! In this week of camp, we will spend time in our very own vegetable and pollinator gardens, making observations, collecting data, and doing some farming. We will learn all about the importance of bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds as we practice different farming and foraging practices. As the week goes on, we will design and install our very own STEM engineering projects for everyday use in the gardens!

Topics covered: sustainability; composting; recycling; environmental awareness; STEM, renewable energy; solar energy; best management practices; farming; botany; species identification; soil science; pollinators; conservation; native and invasive plants; mutualism; symbiotic relationships.

Arts and crafts activities: beehive inspired art; pressed flowers and foliage; building a compost pile; air plant holders; making homemade salsa from the garden
