For thousands of years, humans have studied plants to learn how they too can provide suitable housing for squirrels and grow lemons from their fingertips. Join the pursuit of leafy progress with today’s Groupon to Green Gate Farms. Choose between two options:
- For $17, you get a four-hour kids’ Farmer for a Day session (a $35 value). Kids’ Farmer for a Day camps take place every third Saturday of the month.
- For $37, you get a four-hour Adult Farm Camp day (a $75 value). Adult Farm Camp takes place every second Sunday of the month.<p>
The staff at the certified-organic Green Gate Farms instills adults and children with oodles of sustainable agricultural know-how during four-hour hands-on sessions. During Farmer for a Day sessions, youngsters tag along with farmers, helping them to feed the animals, sow seeds, and set up the farm stand. Kids frolic through a century-old hayloft and magic tree house and see firsthand where vegetables come from, which makes for less awkward discussions with parents.
Adult Farm Camp instructors teach weekend hobbyists, chefs, school gardeners, and families disentangling themselves from the grid about irrigation, composting, and how to manage the livestock when the chickens steal your day planner. Plant organic vegetables, herbs, and flowers on the five-acre property, then come away from the session with a bevy of resources on beginning your own backyard agrarian wonderland.
