Sign up for Camel CSA’s summer activities for childrenPosted on August 6th, 2012 No comments
We’re holding an exciting programme of fun-filled summer holiday workshops for children. Three different sets of activities aimed at 4-11-year-olds start on Wednesday 15 August.
Diana says: “We’re aiming to help children understand exactly where their food comes from in a fun way. They’ll get to touch, smell and taste a variety of vegetables on our plot. They’ll learn how to recognise them, how to sow and grow and also how compost is made.”
Each workshop will run from 11am – 2pm (including break) on our vegetable-growing site at St Kew Highway. The cost for each child is £4, which includes art materials, squash/water and fruit/snacks.

Thursday 23 August - WHAT’S ROTTING?
