 1. Learn the 3 Ethics of Permaculture

Come out and practice the 3 ethics: Care of the Earth, Care of All People & Fair Share and learn their importance in the production of local and sustainable food

2. Grow your own food!

From raspberries and carrots to kale, we’ll be planting, tending, harvesting and eating fresh food from the garden. Using creative recipes for yummy tastings we’ll have your kids joining in our mission to “Eat More Kale.”

3. Meet the chickens

Ok, wait, chickens in the city? Yes! Passport to Permaculture campers will learn about our feathery friends and how they provide for us AND the garden!

4. Play in the Dirt!

Embark on a “Soil Safari.” We’ll get up close and personal with the living organisms that make up a thriving ecosystem and find out why good soil is our lifeline. In fact, it’s proven that a good bacterium in soil improves our mood and increases serotonin in the brain.

5. Build your own garden pizza Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company

Our campers will head out on a pizza-making excursion to Rocky Mountain where local ingredients are the norm. They’ll also get a “taste” of the value of ethical business and social entrepreneurship.

6. Get to know our buzzing garden bees!

Spend a BEE-themed day in the garden learning about our buzzing friends and making bee-utiful arts and crafts! You’ll see how these pollinating friends play a pertinent role in food production as well as the benefits of raw, local honey.

7. Travel the World in Our Garden

Our campers learn about the cultural importance of different food plants, traditional recipes and harvest celebrations from our culturally themed gardens – it’s a multicultural affair!

8. Learn to work in harmony with the nature.

It’s an opportunity for kids to observe nature while they collect stamps on their passport! We’ll learn to create a happily functioning ecosystem that requires minimal inputs with the yummiest of outputs!

9. Run a farm market with your very own handmade garden products!

Kids make products to sell at a kid-run farm market at the gates of The World In A Garden! On the last day of camp we’ll put our new knowledge and love of local food to work, because really, are you ever too young to make change and start an ethical business?

DISCLAIMER: If your child attends this camp they may have frequent cravings for fresh food and start growing food in your yard, on your balcony, or even in your home!
