F2S in NE GA goes to Summer Camp!

Get ready. Get set. Summertime!

Farm to School in Northeast Georgia is going to camp this summer at South Habersham Middle School (SHMS) in Cornelia. 21st Century Summer Camp starts next Monday, June 2 for students rising into grades 6 through 9.
Campers (students) will spend the morning at SHMS taking four classes, Monday through Thursday. Cooking is one of the four enrichment classes offered and gardening is part of the cooking class.
Cooking students will work in the garden on Tuesdays. Earlier this spring, students from North Georgia Technical College in Clarkesville built 4 raised beds on the northwest side of the SHMS. The beds are ready for students to create a three sisters companion garden of corn, beans and squash, in the midst of other summer vegetables.
Carol Balaun is our fearless leader in this foray into summer garden programming. She lives north of Cleveland and became a master gardener in 2012. Nancy Barnes, the 21st Century Grant Coordinator at SHMS, is the summer camp coordinator. Denise Dorsey will teach the cooking class and join us in the garden each week. Ann Tipton lives in Sautee and is participating in this project as a part of her Master Gardener training. I, Jennie Inglis, will be “sending letters home” weekly telling you about the fun we will be having with the students.
Pull out your trunk, mark your clothes, tell the dog good-bye. We’re going to 21st Century Summer Camp!
