Earth Smart, and Goats
(Formerly Farm Camp)
We send our kids to school to learn “book smarts.” We provide opportunities for them to interact and play to learn “social smarts.” We try to give them enough exposure to learn “street smarts.” But there’s something missing. A connection to the world around us and it’s naturally occurring rhythms that we get out of touch with. Earth Smarts.
In our reimagined Farm Camp, we are getting closer to what we’ve always wanted to share with children who share the land with us. A moment for us to remember our basic need for connecting to the world outside ourselves. We’ll learn about the land, the elements, some astrology, the natural seasons and animals. A free-flowing, unstructured opportunity for us to develop some Earth Smarts, together.
The Language of the Horse
An opportunity for ages 10 and up to learn how to read a horse’s body language, develop a deeper awareness of your own body language and how it affects and moves the horse. You’ll learn about horse behavior, and tips on how to feel connected. We’ll touch on how horses communicate with one another, and how to help them see you as a leader. We won’t be riding in this clinic, as the focus is on groundwork and connection. This clinic is a great precursor for those wanting a good foundation for riding.
Summer Land Experiences
Immerse yourself in connecting with the farm, the earth, and people through these one-hour, sensory-rich experiences. During the Summer you could have the opportunity to harvest in our greenhouse, cut flowers from our garden, interact with animals, or walk a tomato or watermelon field. The opportunities are endless.
Explore all the land can offer with a 13-week summer harvest.
From July 14 to October 6, come visit us once per week to receive a basket full of fresh-picked produce. We’ll showcase the best of what’s ripe, carefully selecting each item when it’s at its best. You can expect classic veggies like peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes and summer favorites like stonefruit, cucumbers and summer squash. All the items that everyone in your family will love and enjoy.
Four Weeks in the Life of a Goat
For four weeks, become part of a goat's life. Each person will take on the care of one goat, who they will be responsible for working with for the four weeks. We will be covering a range of topics, and also giving room for quiet space to work and learn alongside the goats.
