New this year: a limited number of spots for childcare will be open to Organic University participants.
Children of any age are welcome to participate in a theater production! Costumes are provided and there are parts for those who want to learn them, along with simple set building. The performance is held before the Friday evening talent show. Other activities include weaving, games, obstacle courses, jewelry-making, painting, make-believe, and crafts.
A day full of fun includes creating puppets and performing an original puppet show. Children will also plant herb gardens, make sidewalk chalk, felt with colorful wool, and learn all about soil, worms, and composting. The day will end with a classic folk tale and group sing-along.
