Kelly Bradley's summer camp, "Little House at Rodgers Ranch," influenced by Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved book series "Little House on the Prairie," has been super popular with campers. Participants register through PHRPD, and there's one camp left this summer, July 23 - July 27 (Monday - Friday, 9am - 3pm). Last week, kids played oak gall relay races, tried quill writing, created a tent fort out of branches, baked cookies from a solar oven, did embroidery on muslin cloth, tried laundry the old-fashioned way (by pumping water and using washboards and a wringer), met some furry friends, made shaved ice with fruit, and did lots and lots of other crafts and activities!

Are you curious about aquaponics? Learn about this home-scaled method of growing fish and plants in one integrated system. Samanntha will introduce aquaponics through Power Point presentation and a discussion of common questions. Components from a variety of systems will be on hand for a greater understanding of the equipment. We will cover fish choices, which plants do best, and system size requirements for small scale food production. Workshop is 6 - 8pm. Cost: $25
