GARDEN TO TABLE PROGRAM
Our Garden to Table Program involves our children in understanding how our food develops from tiny seeds to the food on our table. We start by planting the seeds and nurturing them with water, light, and care. We talk about what we planted and document how our seeds and plants grow. When our crops are ready, the children help harvest the vegetables, fruits, and herbs. Finally, the children get to taste the plants they worked so hard to grow.
This summer our camp program will have a specific center for our garden to table program. In this center children will have the opportunity to:
- Plant seeds and seedlings
- Water and weed within the garden
- Harvest produce
- Observe insects, bugs, and animals
- Document what they see in a garden log
- Taste the product of their hard work
