Camper’s from Nature Camp’s Teen Adventure Camp volunteered on the farm this week. Through volunteering in the garden the teens had the opportunity to see every part of the food production cycle first hand. They planted seeds, weeded, harvested, cooked, and even composted. Their help was much appreciated!
