Kids Connect! Farm, Field & Forest
Thanks to the Monadnock Conservancy, their Kids Connect! Farm, Field & Forest, a 5-week summer program, was brought to the Peterborough region through a partnership with the Cornucopia Project and Four Winds Farm. The program goals are to promote self-esteem, teamwork, play and healthy eating by fostering a connection to land and nature through farming, gardening and woodland exploration activities, and was an expansion of the Conservancy’s Kids Connect! Fun on the Farm program that was launched last year at Tracies Community Farm in Fitzwilliam, NH. The Cornucopia Project oversaw the 10-class session that was held at Four Winds Farm.
Thanks to funding from the Caswell Foundation, Kids Connect! helps serve children ages 8 to 12 who may not have the opportunity to participate in other outdoor summer programs.
