2016 Eight Week Camp


A Square Foot Garden is more than just a perfect place to grow vegetables--it is an ideal environment for kids of all ages to learn about gardening. In this camp. Instructor Brian Fuder teaches tips and tricks, and fun projects he has developed for children ages 6 years and up to build and grow their own square foot gardens. The easy geometry of the gridded box breaks the complex world of gardening into digestible bites that are easy to approach and understand for enthusiastic young learners, and the sequence of tasks required to grow plants from seeds is repeatable and reassuring. Kids can learn many valuable life lessons from creating their own garden--such as the importance of following instructions and doing your chores, basic skills like counting and water conservation, and learning to appreciate the nature of food and why it is important.

This camp will meet Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:00-8:00 p.m. for 8 weeks. The first meeting will be at the Inspire Lab- 423 Main Ave, Moorhead, MN 56560. The following days will be at Trollwood- 801 50th Ave SW, Moorhead, MN 56560 where the gardens will be built and planted.

Camp Kickoff will be on Monday, May 16, 2016 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Inspire Innovation Lab 


The camp is for children ages 6 years old and up and will meet Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:00-8:00 p.m. for 8 weeks.
