This year at the 4-week long Learning 4 Life Farm summer camp in June and July 2022, students gardened in our hoophouse, student vegetable garden and rain garden. In the rain garden students helped maintain it by picking and pulling the weeds. Hoop House activities consisted of harvesting flowers in the mornings and curating bouquets to sell at the farm stand in the evening. Students also sowed a cover crop in some of the hoop house raised beds to prepare for fall fertility.
Students enjoyed picking veggies all summer. After picking the students washed and prepared the veggies to be sold at the farm stand. The farm stand was a big success and the students were a major contributor to this. Not only did they prepare the veggies, flower bouquets, and homemade soap, but they actively participated in selling farm stand items to supporters.
