This brand-new Food Camp at Evergreen Brick Works is a five-day program that offers urban children a variety of hands-on opportunities that will increase their physical fitness and help them understand the importance of making healthy food choices. Campers will learn about where food comes from and how it will give them the physical energy to move around their city.
Campers will be engaged in growing, harvesting, cooking, preserving, sharing and savouring fresh, healthy local food. They will spend time in the gardens planting seeds, tending to the plants and the soil-making worms in the vermi-compost bin. They will go on adventures through the local landscape to discover how animals feed themselves from their landscape as well as learning how to identify poisonous and healing plants. By the end of the week, campers will have experimented in the kitchen, learned new recipes and discovered cooking skills to bring back home. Plus we will be going on a field trip to a local farm!
Registration fees include: 2 lunches, afternoon snacks and the farm field trip.
