Your child will explore new art techniques, practice planting and harvesting native plants, do a bit of individualized agriculture research, and will come home with fresh knowledge and priceless creations each day. Our curriculum is both literacy-based and designed with the help of the Oregon Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation which means that each lesson is rooted in our appreciation for our community, our land, and our planet.
Young learners will paint watercolor masterpieces with natural pigments, build and stamp a pinch pot with native plants, dabble in block printing, and create a mobile using natural treasures. They will construct a living necklace and build a growing glove all while actively learning about everything a seed needs to sprout! Students will leave each day feeling accomplished and toting around their newest art pieces or freshly planted seedlings.
Our curriculum is curated and taught by a Masters certified, veteran elementary school teacher who has collaborated with several local farms and written many literacy based sustainable agriculture and Common Core aligned curricula over the years.
We will be limiting group size to 10 campers to provide maximum ability for physical distancing as well as following the most current CDC guidelines and class will take place outside under a covered, well ventilated area.
We will break for snack times and lunch time. Please send your child with a bag lunch including snacks (it will be kept in a refrigerator) and a water bottle. We will also be providing one healthy snack each day**.
** Please inform us of any food allergies and/or medication needs.
