Peace and Carrots Camp is off to a great start!
Here are just a few of the things our campers have done in the past three days:
- Fed chickens, gathered their eggs, and cleaned the eggs for distribution
- Picked strawberries from the fields and delivered them to our neighbors
- Weeded and prepared a bed for planting squash
- Developed compost from food scraps for the Neighbors’ Garden
- Using only natural materials, decorated birdhouses to be given to folks in need of encouragement
- Ate organic, healthy meals prepared from the produce from our farm, as well as that of other local and regional farms
- Discussed the role of healthy eating and knowing our food sources
- Interacted with the sheep (who are admittedly pretty “sheepish”!)
- Talked about peace leaders such as Gandhi, Dorothy Day, and Susan B. Anthony
- Practiced our conflict transformation skills with real-life situations
- Created an art installment using origami Peace Cranes
- So much more…
And we have so much left to experience together over the next couple of days! Check out some of the pictures below for a brief look at what’s been happening at camp this week:
