University of Maine Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Volunteers and 4-H staff, along with chef Rob Dumas, UMaine’s food science innovation coordinator, is pleased to announce a Farm to Table Summer Camp at Rogers Farm the week of Aug. 1, 2022.
“Farm-to-Table Camp at Rogers Farm” is for youth ages 9–12 interested in growing, harvesting and preparing food and flowers. Participants will sow seeds, care for crops, harvest cut flowers and produce, save seeds and learn how to manage pests and diseases in the garden. Activities also include helping create a collaborative art installation at the farm. The week culminates on the UMaine campus where chef Dumas will focus on developing culinary skills, such as basic food preparation, an understanding of food safety and creating healthy meals with fresh, whole foods.
The $50 camp fee includes all materials and a mid-morning snack.
