Fall on the Farm

No school on Monday, October 10?  Join us for Fall On The Farm!  In this one-day camp, we’ll take a look at how farms prepare for colder weather, explore fall produce and use materials found in nature to make a festive fall craft.  Camp will be held in the barn but will also include outdoor activities, weather permitting.  This is a drop-off camp. Part of the cost goes to support Strong Family Farm.

Run by farm friend Priscilla Cruz of Social Cooking Club.

Cost: $65 per child
