Growing Mr. McGregor’s Garden
What do you get when you cross a classic children’s tale with the imaginations of fifteen 4- and 5-year-olds in a lush garden setting? A week-long camp chock-full of veggie-tastic fun!
Inspired by Beatrix Potter’s “The Tale of Peter Rabbit,” campers planted Mr. McGregor’s vegetable seeds (radishes, carrots, and lettuce) and ate blackberries like Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. They built scarecrows to keep pesky animals out of the Garden and went on a bug hunt to learn which insects we want to invite into the Garden. They made cottontail rabbits with authentic cotton tails and drew maps of Mr. McGregor’s Garden to help Peter get out of his predicament. This popular Green Adventures Summer Camp will hop back into town for the summer of 2016! Until then, enjoy our photos from this year’s camp.
