Calleva Farm and visits to other local farm
For Calleva Farm, being “Green” is not enough. We want to be self-sufficient and teach sustainability with managing our hay fields, produce garden and livestock on our farm. 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. During the week we will meet the cows, chickens, goats, and pigs to learn about each group’s role in our farm’s ecology. But don’t think the week is all work!! Each day there’s ample time spent having fun, as we wander and play on the Calleva Farm. The week culminates with an overnight on Thursday and Friday, during which campers learn about the non-stop, night-and-day life of a modern day farm and all of its challenges.
Optional GearBags to purchase:
This year, Calleva is offering campers the option to purchase a GearBag during checkout which includes all the camping gear you will need for your overnight. These duffle bags come home with your camper on the bus before the overnight so it can be packed with personal clothes and toiletries!
