Big Moves for Week 6

Tomorrow should be an amazing day.  There is so much food ready to be harvested at Ujima.  We have white eggplant, Italian varieties, and Japanese.  We also have a field full of swiss chard, kale, and collard greens.  We have one HUGE watermelon that is getting bigger and bigger every day.  On Thursday, our last day, we will be picking it and eating it with all the kids.  I think they will be so excited because they have watched that baby grow for the last 6 weeks.  Our corn is almost ready to be picked and should be ready by the end of the week too.  Our bean teepees are about 7 feet tall

Thinking about Food

It’s hard to believe that our final week of camp has arrived! Last Thursday, the kids took part in a special lesson on nutrition, during which they learned how to identify and distinguish between simple and complex carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. The students had fun matching cardboard cutouts of certain items, like pizza and eggs, to each of these categories.
