Garden & Farm Camps

Our new school year farm and garden camps will be held in-person with reduced capacity and increased safety health precautions recommended by the Washington State Department of Health. Precautions include: limiting camp group sizes; conducting daily temperature checks; increasing sanitization of surfaces; maximizing outdoor time, staggering activity times, and practicing social distancing to the greatest extent possible. Read our Safety Plan for Camps.

 

Farm & Garden Camps

Is your child ready to dig into the worlds of the farm, garden, and kitchen this winter? With Seattle Public Schools continuing the year all online, Tilth Alliance is offering a safe, outdoor addition to online learning this winter. 

At both the Good Shepherd Center and Rainier Beach Urban and Wetlands, participants will find out where food comes from as they engage in outdoor science activities, garden crafts, educational games, and caring for the crops in Tilth’s gardens and farm.

Tilth Alliance has been offering children’s garden education for more than three decades. We provide a positive, structured and educational outdoor learning environment. Many kids return year after year to experience the variety of opportunities at various ages and we love seeing returning campers, as well as meeting new ones!
