If you have kids, chances are you’re already thinking about upcoming summer activities. If your children have an interest in food production and farming, check out Soil Born Farms’ unique summer day camp, for kids entering grades 1-12.
The camps (grouped by age, with cute names like the “Sprouts,” “Seedlings” and “Gardeners”) take place at Soil Born’s 40-acre ranch along the American River Parkway. The focus is to help youth make the connection between their food, health, and the environment.
Each day focuses on a different theme, including hiking/exploring the river environment; harvesting (kids will pick produce and assemble food boxes for donation); cooking, and an array of farm-related activities that teach them “what it takes to bring food from the farm to the table.”
