  • Sign up for Camel CSA’s summer activities for children

    Posted on August 6th, 2012 charlotte 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.

    The action-packed sessions are led by workshop leader Diana Barry, also Camel CSA’s treasurer.

    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.

    Wednesday 15 August – COOL AS A CUCUMBER 
    Tickle your taste buds! Try a variety of vegetables while blindfolded. Explore the site and discover about our environment during more hands-on fun activities

    Thursday 23 August – WHAT’S ROTTING?
     Compost, marvellous compost! Examine it very closely and meet our specialists – the earthworms. Find out about the growth cycle of plants and how long it take for different things to decompose 

    • Friday 24 August – READY, STEADY, GROW
    Touch, feel and smell plants! Discover how to sow and grow. Learn how to take care of plants to make them grow strong and tall. Take your own plant home
