During two, week-long sessions, City Seedling campers will play, explore, learn, and help tend Garden School Foundation’s 1.5-acre organic garden at 24th Street Elementary School in Historic West Adams. Campers will learn how to propagate and care for plants, make compost, and harvest crops. They will dive into the science behind growing food, the life cycles of worms, plant adaptation, and much more. During cooking classes, campers will use their newfound gardening skills to harvest ingredients and prepare their own lunches in our on-site kitchen. Younger campers will gain the basic kitchen skills and confidence to chop, grate, peel, and dress their own fresh foods, while older campers will take on more complex recipes and experiment with pickling, preserving, and fermenting.
By offering a content-rich, hands-on experience in an outdoor living laboratory, we inspire kids to reconnect to nature and deepen their interest in life sciences. Campers will join the growing ranks of GSF junior chef/gardeners – the next generation of healthy food advocates and environmental warriors!
