This summer keep your kids moving with the Northwest Youth Corps and School Garden Project of Lane County as we explore the world of Organic Gardening! Campers will have the opportunity to, design and build beds, sow seeds, transplant starts, apply companion planting techniques, create healthy compost (compost science will also include nitrogen/ oxygen levels and pH testing), harvest crops, and create quick healthy foods fresh from the garden. Curriculum will be explored at the Northwest Youth Corps’ Laurel Valley Educational Farm, over a dozed School Garden Project Sites, Food for Lane County Farms, and
Children will be able to bring home fresh produce and plant starts, take field trips to local farms, create a “nature journal” to collect and press plants, build their own solar oven, learn to make handmade paper, learn about bee keeping, learn wet felting with raw wool, experiment with Cob (natural building), inoculate mushroom logs to bring home, and many more activities designed to combine crafts, games and lessons together for a complete educational experience.
