We're wrapping up our first week of Farm Camp already! Here is a glimpse of what some of our campers have been saying...
When describing what Lamb's Ears SHOULD be called: "Puppy Belly"
While touching the potting clay in our "seed balls" activity: "this feels like touching clouds"
Looking through the compost pile: "I spy an invertebrate!"
Camp Director pun: "What did the mom cow say to the baby cow? You gotta go to bed it's PASTURE bed time"
On a bug catching excursion: "Guard my Harlequin Beatles!!"
After our beekeeping lesson: "I have a business plan for the bees...have them sting the cockroaches"
We have heard shrieks of laughter during our water games; inquisitive questions when Farmer Katherine came to discuss crop rotation, seasonal harvesting, and proper washing techniques; hushed excitement when Farmer LaRon gave a lesson on beekeeping (including a demonstration with the bee smoker); and "ooo this is good"s when they try our farm fresh cooking creations for the first time. And don't forget the wide eyes we see when they hold a warm egg or feel the soft feathers of our hens.
A huge thanks to everyone who made this amazing first week possible!
