At Farm Day Camp, Children Learn Firsthand About the Farm, Food, and the Natural World That Sustains Them

For over 20 years, Rural Resources has offered a unique learning opportunity to children in Greene County and surrounding East Tennessee. Placed in age appropriate groups, they spend a week immersed in a working, educational farm, learning about plants, animals, food, and the natural world. Along the way, they have plenty of opportunities for fun activities like craft-making, swimming in our creek, and good old playing in the dirt! The 2015 Farm Day Camp schedule is already up, and registration will begin in the next few days.
