Our Seed to Snack Garden Explorer Camps will take place at the Hyalite  and Irving Elementary School gardens.

Seed to Snack campers will spend the week outdoors discovering where food comes from through hands-on gardening, cooking and science activities. We will plant seeds, harvest fruits and vegetables, use investigative skills to identify and explore the  interdependencies of insects and plants, create garden-related art projects, learn about the science of plant parts, keep garden journals, make worm composts, and cook and enjoy a homemade snack every day. Each session will include a field trip to a local farm to help youth experience food production on a larger scale and explore various aspects of the food system, from the seed to our snack!

“My children walked away with a better understanding of how food from the garden gets to their plates. They learned some fabulous, and HEALTHY, recipes for making snacks and meals from the garden, and they felt empowered to continue preparing healthy food after the camp. Thank you Erin, and the rest of the staff, for creating such a fun, educational and worthwhile experience for my children.”  - 2015 Seed to Snack Parent
