Teaching kids where food comes from, why it matters, and how they can help change the world.
Coastal Roots Farm is thrilled to invite "Farmers-in-Training" entering grades K - 5 to experience shomrei adamah (farm chores), medah (science-based learning), omanut (arts and crafts), shirim (songs), and kef ba'teva (fun in nature) through the lens of Jewish tradition in our unique outdoor space.
Farm Camp activities may include:
- Farm “chores” – digging, weeding, transplanting, composting, and harvesting
- Farm cooking and crafts – pressing flowers, drying herbs, painting, and making salad
- Learning about how food is grown
- Science experiments with seeds and soil
- Singing farm songs, hearing stories, and mindful practice of listening to nature
- Snack time including healthy, colorful treats
