During Inspired Girls on the Farm we will be enjoying nature and making art projects together. We will also spend time in the gardens and go hiking along the creek in an effort to encourage healthy eating and strengthen the girls' relationship to nature. Additional focus will be given to art projects designed to provoke thought, foster kindness and compassion, and to build confidence and sisterhood. Research has found that creating art relieves stresses, boosts self-esteem, and increases empathy and tolerance. We're excited to help foster this and have a ton of fun doing it! Projects will include knit purses or pouches, jewelry making, mixed media art projects, essential oil/herbal sugar scrubs, and more. During this session a special emphasis will also be given to helping this next generation of environmentalists connect to our natural world, and empowering them to make our world a better place. We know from last year that the girls will also leave with new friends and lots of great memories. All programming is led by Ana Skemp, M.S. Ecology, owner of Deep Roots Community Farm and Jeni Blake, artist and owner of Inspired. 8:1 staff to child ratio. Children will be asked to bring their own healthy snacks and lunch.
