Thanks to generous donors, all 8 cottages (living quarters for 10 to 17 residents) have deer proof garden beds! Our 2nd session of this new program will begin in January – most teams will work with the youth on Sunday afternoons for this new 4-week session. We need more leaders & helpers! There is some flexibility if you want to lead a group. Can you join us?
This program has 2 main components with suggested lessons & activities provided.
- Know, Sow, Grow – hands on growing with a set of 6 garden-based activities & lessons geared towards teaching the basics of plant parts & processes, emphasizing garden vocabulary & observation.
- Cooking with Curiosity – introduces the youth to cooking skills while building reflection practices so that they can cook confidently on their own terms. It is a 4-unit program
