Garden Explorers: A Saturday Camp for Rising 2nd-5th Graders

Here’s an opportunity for rising 2nd-5th graders: At Garden Explorers camp, they will explore growing, cooking and eating delicious food. They will care for plants, make recipes and crafts, go for walks and talk about food topics, such as composting and farmers’ markets.
