Farm to Table Summer Camp at Rogers Farm


Youth ages 9-12 will be involved in all aspects of growing, harvesting, and preparing food and flowers from the demonstration garden at Rogers Farm. Our new farmers will sow seeds for our fall harvest, gather cut flowers and veggies and learn how to create culinary delights with trained chefs. Additionally, the group will help create a collaborative art-installation at the farm, learn about a variety of food-related topics from exciting guests, and have the opportunity to give back to the community in a service project.

The $150 camp fee includes all materials and two special meals during the week. We ask that families provide morning and afternoon snacks as well as lunch on 4 of the days.

When: Monday-Friday, July 24-28, 2023
8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Where: Rogers Farm, 914 Bennoch Road will be the morning drop off. Hitchner Hall on campus will be the afternoon pickup.
