Green Thumb and Salad Toes Gardening and Cooking Camp
April 3, 2018
Monday 7/9 through Friday 7/13 from 10:00am to 12:30pm
If you’ve ever dreamed up having a green thumb and salad toes to make you a whiz in the kitchen, this camp is for you!
Spend five fun-filled days digging, planting, drawing, writing, harvesting, and cooking with educator and gardener extraordinaire, Martha Hall, and Maite Gomez-Rejon of ArtBites.
Each day, children will learn about the amazing world of plants and discover what makes gardens thrive through lively discussion, game playing, and hands-on gardening. Children will harvest ingredients for a hands-on cooking class and culminate the day with a group meal enjoyed in the garden.
A summer well spent!
Registration is required as space is limited to 6 children. The camp is located in LA’s Miracle Mile area. Exact address given upon registration. ($400)
