Sharing knowledge with TRACKS summer campers
The Flint Corn Community Project was a place of great excitement this afternoon as youth from the TRACKS summer camp program learned about indigenous agriculture. After being introduced to corn, beans, and squash, also known as The Three Sisters, the campers were taught the importance of tending the plants. Sitting in the shade of one of The Mount’s many apple trees, TRACKS staff Dawn Martin explained soil formation and pest management. Bea Chan of Farms at Work helped campers make solitary bee nests.
We look forward to hosting TRACKS and many other community groups throughout the summer. Like the Flint Corn Community Project on Facebook at www.facebook.com/flintcorn.
