Rediscovering our connection with nature

My favorite summer memories from childhood are all set outdoors. They’re full of warm days spent exploring, and the smell of earth underfoot. When I decided to offer a four-day nature experience for kids this summer, it was with those memories in mind. Spending time outdoors is one of the best parts of childhood, and one that it’s vital to reclaim for our own children. This summer, you can do just that.

On mornings from 9am-12pm from July 15 to July 18, children will explore all the farm has to offer. In a series of hands-on activities led by experienced educator Maddie Judge, they’ll investigate the needs of plants, how plants start and grow, the natural systems like the water cycle that enable us to farm, and more. They’ll develop a deeper appreciation for how ecosystems are created from a complex web of interdependencies that include plants, animals, soil, and climate. Best of all, they’ll do it right here on the farm, in an environment perfectly suited to developing an intuitive sense of how humans fit into the growing world - and how we work with it to produce what we need to live.

Each day will include carefully planned, interactive lessons on nature and natural processes. We’ll enjoy building knowledge and curiosity together, and even munch on some Snuck Farm greens and veggies. Spots in our Nature Week are limited, so visit our website to reserve your child’s summer nature experience today!

My to-do list is long. Yours probably is, too. Every day, no matter how many items I check off, it seems that more sprout in their place. It’s the Medusa of to-do lists.
