Sow-What? Get Cooking in the Garden Camp
July 17 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:30 am, repeating until July 19, 2019
Join the Powell Gardens’ team to learn about vegetable gardening and harvesting. Children entering grades 3-5 this fall who are interested in learning about how produce is grown, harvested and prepared, can join this week-long day camp.
Each day’s theme is inspired by what comes out of the garden. Participants will learn about the origin of particular foods, how seeds are grown into vegetables and how to identify when it is time to pick particular items.
Participants will work in teams to make one recipe each day. Students will receive instruction from a professional chef and Powell Gardens docents on proper kitchen techniques including knife skills, measuring, sautéing and mixing. Each day includes a nature hike, snack and lunch, journal writing time, recipe brainstorming session, games and nature play. Sessions take place in the Heartland Harvest Garden and in the education classroom.
Daily aftercare is available Monday-Thursday until 5:30 p.m. for $10 per student per day.
