Farm To Table Nature and Cooking Camp
A week long of exploration of fun, hands-on cooking, out-door activities that integrate food and the environment. Each day campers will learn how to cook summer lunches by using ingredients that are in season and locally grown, bake healthy deserts, learn about the ingredients and their nutritional values, cooking techniques, mince, chop, grill …What’s the system that gets food from farm to table and how does this system effect the environment? How nature provides us with food? Where our food comes from? Campers will learn also about urban farming, farmers markets, how to shop for the right ingredients, land, soil, seeds, animals, plants and more through daily excursions. Campers will build valuable connection between our food, environment, local communities, all while making friendships and having lots of fun!
