Teach your children about chickens

Mary Eberle from First Step Renew let us know that Camp Green Star, Madison’s urban farming camp for kids aged 7-13, will be open again this summer. The camp gives kids hands-on experience with sustainable gardening and raising chickens in the city and other practical skills that can inspire them throughout their lives. At camp, kids also learn about composting, watering the garden with rainwater, and making butter and ice cream by hand

Camp Green Star is a secular (non-religious) camp held on Madison's west side at Madison Christian Community. The site has seven acres, plenty of room for kids to play and explore the prairie under the guidance of the teachers.

Registration is open now for afternoon or full day sessions. For more information, visit Camp Green Star. Camp Green Star was recently featured in Edible Madison Magazine.
