Gardening Day Camps
This morning reading the paper, I found an article titled, "Farm to Fork." The article shared the story of Elizabeth Anna's Old World Garden in Fort Worth, Texas. She teaches the basics of farm life, but her goal is to help children understand the connection between gardening and the food on their plate. The article shares her successes as she relates to children from ages 6 to 12. Summer is a great time to offer camps like these, children are so detached from agriculture that a farmers everyday life is intriguing to them. So, if you have a garden this could be a great idea for some summer income.
