Three hundred thirty-three kids, more than 350 jars of pickles - summer at E.A.T. South means summer camp.
We call the program Can You Dig It, but you could call it Camp Cucumber. Children from nine community centers and from the United Way’s summer enrichment program picked cucumbers and dill in the garden (dill was officially renamed as “the pickle plant” in case you didn’t get the memo). All kids made their own refrigerator pickles to take home. There was also time for garden scavenger hunts, field games, water fights, and chicken snuggling.
Can You Dig It summer camp is a truly collaborative effort. We are grateful for the support of Montgomery Parks and Recreation, Big Cedar Education Foundation, the United Way, and, of course, our volunteers - ten E.A.T. South volunteers dedicated 45 hours of their summers to creating farm fun for Montgomery’s kids. Thank you all!
