Summer On The Farm Camp Descriptions
Summer On The Farm:
Are you ready to dig, run, build, draw, garden, eat and discover? GROW La Crosse and Deep Roots Community Farm proudly present Summer on the Farm, where students will plant, tend, and harvest fruits and vegetables and explore where our food comes from. Students will also learn how to identify species and understand the relationship between each part of the farm and the larger ecosystem. We will spend time each day being active outside including: hiking up the bluffs, building forts, splashing in the creek and caring for the animals at the farm. In each session, students will investigate the art and science of farming, photosynthesis, ecology, local clay, color, and pollination.
Students should plan to bring a water bottle, snack, and shoes for the creek. Sunscreen, bug spray, a hat, and rain gear for rainy days are recommended as this class will meet rain or shine. Summer on the Farm will be held at Deep Roots Community Farm.
Location for all farm camps: Deep Roots Community Farm W4406 Cty. Rd. YY, La Crosse
