Green Thumb and Salad Toes Summer Camp
Spend five fun-filled days digging, planting, drawing, harvesting, and cooking with educator and gardener extraordinaire, Martha Hall, and Maite Gomez-Rejon of ArtBites.
Each day, children will learn about the amazing world of plants and discover what makes gardens thrive through lively discussion, game playing, and hands-on gardening. Children will harvest ingredients for a hands-on cooking class and culminate the day with a group meal enjoyed in the garden.
A summer well spent!
