Immersion And Wellness Program Teaches Youth Crops’ Journey From Fields To Dinner Tables
During summer 2012, some campers at the Iowa 4-H Center were immersed in nutrition education, gardening, culinary skills, physical activity, and a health-promoting environment as part of an Iowa State University research study.
Another program initiated by the ISEUEO program teaches young campers about seeds, crops, farming, and what goes into the foods they eat on the dinner table daily. They learn about not only farming (harvesting, feeding, weeding , etc.), but also track those crops to the kitchen when they learn proper cooking and food preparation… all with guidance from great staff, immersing them in an illuminative environment that teaches them the benefits of healthy, natural foods and physical exercise.
