Magic in the Dirt | July 15-19 | 1st– 3rd Grade
In partnership with Monte Cassino School, we are excited to offer Magic in the Dirt. Campers will explore the gardens, investigate how insects help and hurt our world, participate in experiments, and cook with garden produce. And they just might learn some garden-themed songs, too! For more information, please visit: https://www.montecassino.org/camp-monte
We teach an all-encompassing curriculum that connects the garden with other disciplines and allows students to connect the garden to both school learning and real life experiences, and we encourage the use of the garden as a central gathering and meeting place for the community.
