9:00 AM to 3:00 PM

$295 + $20 materials fee plus HST (lunches included)

Our day farm camp for children ages 7-12 offers environmental literacy experiences through the exploration of a variety of habitats – by growing, harvesting, preparing and eating organic fruits and vegetables, feeding and caring for farm animals, and through nature-based art, using child-centered, fun activities.
Each day children will take part in farm chores such as collecting eggs, harvesting strawberries, digging potatoes, making compost, baking, cooking and eating from the farm. They will use art and journaling to express and enhance their experience.
Tracy Harrison has been a Registered Art Therapist and children’s instructor for over 20 years. She has designed and delivered art-based programs for children in Thailand, Mexico and Indonesia, with native communities in Labrador and Northern Ontario, in numerous public schools, and at festivals and summer camps locally and nationally. She facilitates an open art studio out of Phoenix Secondary School and is a regular participant in Salt Spring Island’s “Artist in the Classroom” program and offers out of her Creative Fire Art Studio on the island.
Jacob Deacon-Evans knows his way around the kitchens of some of Vancouver’s top restaurants, such as West, Cioppino’s and Bishop’s. Chef Jacob volunteers with Vancouver’s Growing Chefs! Chefs for Children’s Urban Agriculture program, and he is looking forward to sharing his talent and enthusiasm with kids at Foxglove Farm this summer.
