Common Threads Farm is an amazing resource for children and adults in Whatcom County. They provide day camps for kids to learn about farming and local food, cooking with fresh vegetables, and a "Farmer's Market" type vegetable stand. Children get lots of hands-on experience in their gardens. Their t-shirt logo says it all: "Get dirt on your shirt". My daughter also really enjoyed visiting with the chickens and ducks on the farm.
My children have learned to better appreciate our fresh, local produce through CTF's school lunch program, which brings fresh vegetables and fruits to our schools every month.
