Earth Calendar for June 11th and June 12th

Jun 11, 2012

The Gorman Heritage Farm Saturday Summer Farm Kids program offers kids ages 12-16 the opportunity to have hands on learning experiences on an educational working farm.  One hundred years ago most kids grew up on farms and had a closer relationship to the food they ate.  Gorman Heritage Farm gives kids the opportunity to access a modern working farm and develop a new and deeper relationship with local food and agriculture.    

The Saturday Summer Farm Kids program gives kids the opportunity to understand how a farm fits into our current food system, participate in farm activities, and learn the value of a small farm in our local community. 
Kids will learn about where their food comes from, how to grow their own food, cook fresh and healthy food, learn how to care for and respect animals. The Saturday Farm Kids program takes place every Saturday through August 11th from 9:00 am – noon.
Thanks to part to a grant from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation, this program is offered at no cost. For more information please visit the Gorman Farm website.
