Norwich Farm Foundation
Hello Friends and Neighbors -
We hope you can join the newly-formed Norwich Farm Foundation for one of their regularly scheduled updates on Norwich Farm (dates/times listed below). They have all been working really hard for literally years and are excited to update the community with their proposal. Time is of the essence as Vermont State Colleges is in the process of selling the property. If we do not act now, Norwich’s last dairy farm will soon be a distant memory.
Thursday, February 4 at 7 pm EST
Thursday, February 11 at 7pm EST
As a supporter of Norwich Farm Creamery, and a concerned citizen when it comes to this unique property, we want you to be the first to know about the Norwich Farm Foundation and their business plan.
Let’s unite to keep the farm for future generations.
To assist us with planning, please register today!
Cedar Circle Farm Summer Camp
Monday–Friday, 9 AM to 4 PM
June 28–September 3, 2021
Info and registration here: https://cedarcirclefarm.
Curiosity and wonder are all around us during our week-long summer camps! Our highly qualified educators believe that students are the most engaged and learn best when their inquisitiveness and hands-on experiences are encouraged and empowered. Explorations through the forest, adventures along the riverbank, and games between the strawberry fields will cultivate a true appreciation for our ecosystems here in the Upper Valley, as well as the farm-fresh food and the community connections available within this unique setting.
Experienced staff facilitate campers ages 6-11 through activities and learning opportunities in groups of no more than ten. In addition to daily farm chores, games, and sensory-based explorations, campers have opportunities throughout the week tochoose their own activities.
Some of these activities may include:
- baking a sweet treat for the whole farm
- creating and painting garden signs
- harvesting fruits or veggies from our fields for a snack
- collecting and identifying insects who live on the farm
- learning about the food chain while playing a camp-wide game of tag
- working in teams to complete a scavenger hunt
- tracking the wildlife that visits the farm
Safety, fun, and community building are at the foundation of our education programs. Our program is designed to instill a strong sense of stewardship and belonging among our campers, the environment, and one another.
