Harvesting summer crops, preparing, and cooking them, as well as sowing seeds for the fall will be the main activity.

Stories, myths, songs, and plays will be the preparation and back-drop to our farming. Plants need water and so will we, so some water-play will be included. We will take walks to the creek and to the Medicinal Plant Garden. Not just the top soil, but also clay will be a medium for our play.
