A farm-to-table summer camp — for youth ages 9-12 interested in growing, harvesting and preparing food and flowers — is scheduled for 7:45 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday, Aug. 1 to 5, at Rogers Farm, 914 Bennoch Road in Old Town.

The camp will be hosted by University of Maine Cooperative Extension master gardener volunteers, UMaine Extension 4-H staff and Rob Dumas, UMaine food science innovation coordinator and chef, according to a news release from the extension.

“Farm-to-Table Camp at Rogers Farm” participants can sow seeds, care for crops, harvest cut flowers and produce, save seeds and learn how to manage pests and diseases in the garden. Activities also include helping create a collaborative art installation at the farm.

The week culminates on the UMaine campus, where Dumas will focus on developing culinary skills, such as basic food preparation, an understanding of food safety and creating healthy meals with fresh, whole foods.

Registration is required by Friday, May 20. The $50 fee includes all materials and snacks.
