Wellspring Farm Camps Registration Has Begun
Mar 03, 2014 04:49PM
Registration for Wellspring Summer Gardening and Farm Camps has begun. Youth ages 6 through 16 can learn aspects of organic farm life through season-based activities such as planting, nurturing and harvesting vegetables and fruits; caring for chickens; and learning about soil, flowers, insects and worms. Children can also partake in nature-oriented games and create outdoor-inspired art projects.
The camps are designed to teach practical gardening skills and the connection between food and its origins. To accommodate the busy summer schedules of many families, Wellspring offers one-, three- or five-day sessions. Past youth programs have drawn families from Milwaukee and the southeastern Wisconsin region.
Since 1982, Wellspring has been promoting healthy and sustainable food systems through education at its nonprofit organic farm and retreat with a goal to teach people and communities how to grow and prepare healthy food and promote wellness education, ecology, gardening and the arts.
Location: 4382 Hickory Rd., West Bend. For detailed program descriptions and dates, registration and more information, call 847-946-5565 or visit WellspringInc.org.
