R+K holds Farm and Food Kids Camp
Camp features learning sessions and activities led by R+K staff.
R+K held its second Farm and Food Kids Camp in August. The camp teaches the younger family members and friends of R+Kers about the importance of agriculture in the world, where food comes from and how it is produced. The R+K staff-led camp included sessions on the production of corn and soybeans and their many uses. There was also a learning session on the water cycle. To complement their learning, the kids made slime and corn putty from corn starch and dish soap; ate edamame and planted soybeans with crystal soil; and made their own version of a water cycle. The day ended with a pizza party and gift bags filled with snacks, coloring pages and soy crayons.
