Young farmers and gardeners have a unique opportunity to explore past and present farming practices on the historic Wyckoff Farm. Campers ages 7 to 12 will learn about the plant life cycle from seed to harvest as well as the importance of composting and other green initiatives.  Hands-on art projects and botanic investigations will allow campers to explore various aspects of plant life, from cultivated crops to free growing weeds. Each one-week session will culminate in a presentation of the campers’ artistic and planted achievements, as well as food prepared by campers from the Wyckoff garden.
