DIRT made my lunch. That’s right, DIRT made my lunch and dirt makes your lunch!! Think about it. Almost everything we eat has its beginnings in dirt.

Our Plant Camp theme this year is “Dirt Made my Lunch.”  Each day will find us discovering how dirt plays an integral role in producing what we eat and will emphasize the importance of being Good Stewards of our Earth’s Resources.

This June, Agricenter International and your Memphis Area Master Gardeners are sponsoring their ninth annual PLANT CAMP for boys and girls, ages 8–12. Enrollment is limited to 30 campers.

CAMP happens outdoors the week of June 9 through June 13 from 9:00am until Noon at the Agricenter located at 7777 Walnut Grove Road just west of Germantown Parkway.

PLANT CAMP activities will include:

                  Hands-on projects                                     Daily journal & Jeopardy
                  Educational discussions                            Theme-related snacks
                  Harvesting, planting & recycling              Friday Musical by the Campers
                  Outdoor classroom events                        Friday reception for Parents

Since our camp instructors and staff are Master Gardener volunteers, we are able to offer this amazing week of camp for only $35.00 per child which includes all project materials, activities and a Plant Camp shirt!

For more information, visit the UT Extension website or call Tim Roberts at 757-7777 ext.7109.

The deadline for applying to attend PLANT CAMP is Friday, May 30, 2014.

Please share this information about Plant Camp with anyone you know who has children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or friends ages 8-12. Thanks!
