Fall KCC


Dinner from Dirt

Have you ever thought about where your food comes from? Whether you are a vegetarian or an omnivore, your food depends on soil, microorganisms and the growers that produce food plants and animals. Experiment with soils and irrigation, investigate insects, try your hand at hydroponic farming, and cook using the sun's energy. Kids Conservation Corps is an annual natural history education series for children ages 9–13, with a new theme each year. Designed for children who are being homeschooled, this program series will meet 1–3 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month (note date change in December).
