ROOTS & SHOOTS - Day 1

  • Cold Spring Farm 46 Town Road Colchester, CT, 06415 United States (map)

Explore the fascinating world of the garden in these two-day camps for adults and preschoolers. Children and adults will enjoy time together outdoors while learning about insects, plants and flowers. Parents can also learn about child-friendly herbs and veggies, and how to grow an organic garden with the whole family. Each session includes hands-on gardening, an art project, stories, our famous sun tea, and yummy snacks! 

When we eat our vegetables weโ€™re not just eating veggies but a whole collection of plant parts. Roots and shoots, tender leaves, juicy fruits and tasty seeds. Follow us through the garden as we discover unique snacks and art projects inspired by plants! Eating habits form at an early age and kids are much more likely to eat veggies if they participate in growing and caring for them. In this camp weโ€™ll experience the magic of the garden as we go on a plant part scavenger hunt, tend to the garden and all its critters, and harvest vegetables for a delicious garden smoothie.
