Growing Green ~MD
The Growing Green program gives campers the full experience on the circle of being self-sufficient, raising animals humanely, using traditional grow practices, and eating local. Campers will get down and dirty weeding, plowing the bedrows, transplanting, composting, and other farm duties. We want to be self-sufficient and teach sustainability with managing our hay fields, produce garden, and livestock on our farm.
