Thanks to the Hopilavayi Summer Enrichment Camp for visiting the EcoRanch. The students were in grades 1 through 6 and came with a lot of energy. This is a 4 week program that teaches the Hopi language through cultural activities. These were some of the most respectful, well-behaved, and curious students we have had visit the EcoRanch. Thanks to the teachers (Debbie and Rachele) and especially their parents!
We toured the EcoRanch, discussed the different types of plants we grow, dug into the compost, and spent a lot of time learning about bees. The kids ate radishes (which most of them didn’t like) and different types of lettuce. After our tour, the kids attempted to catch the chickens and those who did, learned how to properly hold them. We had a refreshing lunch on the porch where we practiced separating our finished lunches into compostable material, food for the chickens, recyclables, and trash. We look forward to having you all out next year!
