GaiaKids® on the Farm

June 15th, 2012

Echinacea, bees & bamboo! Tractor rides, organic snacks & herb games too! A group of our Gaia Kids had a blast learning about herbs on the farm. Our first-ever GaiaKids® Field Day started with snacks, stories and games…plus a few corny plant jokes, while waiting out the morning rain. Then the kids jumped on the tractor to explore the Echinacea purpurea fields, running full-speed into their full-bloom glory. Ric Scalzo, founder of Gaia Herbs, discussed the role of bees on the farm and let the kids sample wildflower honey. Afterwards, they explored the bamboo forest, dark & cool (and a little spooky), that borders Cathey’s Creek and the farm’s River Bottom fields. Lots of muddy sneakers were rinsed off at the end of a laughter-filled morning. We’re looking forward to doing this again for more of our GaiaKids.
