Learn and play at Live Earth Farm in the Discovery Garden and Fields, the chicken pasture, goat pen, pony corral, and in the kitchen classroom. The Live Earth Farm Discovery Program offers programs for all ages throughout the summer including week long camps, u-pick events, and drop in programs for families.
Watsonville, CA, April 2, 2014 – In the summer of 2014 LEFDP will open up the farm to people of all ages through a variety of fun, educational programs. There will be three different weeklong summer camps offered for 5 weeks in the summer. There are two drop in programs each month for the youngest farmers and their mothers, fathers, nannies, grandparents, or whoever takes care of them. Wee Ones is for babes 0-3 years old, and Small Farmers is a slightly longer and more in depth program for children 3-6 years old. And new in 2014 LEFDP will host a series of free, family friendly u-pick events at which a different fruit or vegetable will be featured each in the peak of their season.
The LEFDP summer camps offer a unique opportunity to engage with the food Live Earth Farm grows in an in-depth field to fork experience that lasts a whole week. Young Farmers Camp will focus on the processes of growing and preparing food, providing campers with comprehensive experience in the fields and kitchen, sprinkled with a whole bunch of fun. Sprouts Camp will engage really young kids and their families in the garden and animal pens for a 5 senses experience of growing, eating, and playing with our food. As ever, Art on the Farm camp will weave nature-based art activities with fruit, vegetable, and farm animal fun. All of the summer camps include a Leader in Training program for teens. Scholarships are available.
