Grow It Know It Summer 2020

GIKI Summer Camp

Each summer, Grow It Know It has operated "Kitchen Garden Corps" summer camp opportunities for middle school aged youth in the Athens community. These weekly day camps focus on environmental education, school gardens, sustainability, and food preparation and preservation.

COVID-19 Emergency OperationsĀ 

Due to COVID-19, online programming and remote learning opportunities will take the place of face-to-face Kitchen Garden Corps camps in 2020.

Beginning in late May, students from Clarke County School District and Barrow County School System can participate in a FREEĀ virtual camp of agriculture and family and consumer science activities with connections to STEAM content. Instructional topics include crop science, composting, food science, and cooking. Participants will also have the opportunity to engage with peers of and outside their home school district, and families will be provided take-home material kits for hands-on activities.
