Grab your journals and magnifiers and get ready to put your science thinking caps on! During this session, campers will engage in lessons provided by Learning in Places as they design their own garden-based investigation from start to finish. Using the Children’s Garden at the Good Shepherd Center as our living laboratory, campers will use their curiosity and garden observations to form a collective research question about how to care for the garden this summer. Tilth Alliance’s environmental educators will use the campers’ ideas to guide activities and investigations for the week. Campers will explore the garden to collect data about their question, develop methods for testing, and interview a community expert to help inform their group decision. We will finish up the session by sharing our findings to pass along what we have learned to the next group of campers. Along the way, we’ll cook some delicious dishes, play games, and learn garden techniques.
