Garden Explorers One-Day Garden Camps

Let your child roll their up their sleeves and learn the beauty of gardening!

During each garden camp children will begin to see the phenomenal things they can produce.  We will be working at Pferde Farm in an 80’ x 80’ kitchen garden and/or greenhouse filled with flowers, herbs, fruits, and vegetables.  Come for one day or sign up for multiple Saturdays throughout the summer.

A light snack will be provided.  Please bring a water bottle with you.

Learn about the synergy between pollinators and plants. Birds, butterflies and bees are providers for a great crop and how to take care of our environment is crucial to our existence.

Fall Planting

/site/pics/538/166321/549180/796112/fall_planting_3.jpg

Discover & plant vegetables and flowers that will begin to bloom in the fall. We will also learn about which plants you can regrow from scraps so that you have a continual food supply without having to be outside. Children will bring home a regrown plant they planted & once the plant begins roots, plant it in your fall garden.
