Sun Sprouts Farm Camp

Sun Sprouts Farm Camp

Where does our food come from? Can we grow food and raise animals with care while living in the city? What does it mean to eat locally, seasonally, from farm to table? How do we grow, eat, and share food in a way that honors ourselves, the earth, and our communities?

Sun Sprouts explores these questions through gardening, cooking, art-making, and play, with an emphasis on human and non-human relationship building. Together we practice hands-on gardening and culinary skills, like how to harvest herbs and knead bread, while affirming kids' autonomy and curiosity. Participants will experience firsthand the power of growing their own fresh food and sharing it with community. And perhaps most important, participants will receive the grounding mental health benefits of spending time outside and actively caring for the land.
