Thank you for helping run the farm during your week at camp. It’s a rugged five days: being with new people, sleeping in tents, waking up early and doing CHORES! We set high expectations, gave you responsibility and you delivered.
Nature’s Farm Camp provides a fair amount of freedom, offering choices and a flexible schedule, but meals (and farm chores!) provide structure to our day. When the bell rings, y’all head toward the kitchen. Yet, meals are more than just that time we gather to consume enough calories for the next activity.
Food makes the world go-round. You were often included in the preparation of meals, from garden harvests and chopping veggies to rolling out pizza crust, you all made the magic happen. We hope you enjoyed learning and practicing knife skills, exploring new foods, helping set the menu, and being proud to present and serve your peers. We understand that, for our individual health, and for the well-being of our communities, food matters. We want to get to know all the fantastic flavors that are possible and we need food to keep us (all of us) strong.
This summer, over five weeks, we tried 90 different meals and snacks. We also had six different cooking instructors. Through the spring, we plan to send out more recipes every few months – based partially on what we cooked with you at camp and what’s in season.
Everyone’s busy, but food is worth coming together around. Choose great food, and enjoy sharing it. Thanks again for helping run the farm for the week.
