Duration: 4-weeks: Aug 3-28
Event: August 28, Friday
August Community Challenge: Organize an educational, conscious feria event to raise money for a community cause during an intimate, family market, Friday, August 28. This will give students an opportunity to apply their ecological research, advocacy, and hands-on work,
in a deeper, purposeful way.
Children will join a variety of different classes to collaborate to decide:
what products will be sold (Trees, flowers, eggs, snacks, auction? )
the value of the products (Time, energy, emotion, future return)
how to market/advertise products to families (online store, website, bilingual commercials)
how to sustainably prepare and package products
(Special promotional rate for new families)
Come try us out for 4 weeks at our discounted local family rate.
Should you choose to continue enrolment after that we will be happy to arrange with you a 2020 schedule that works for your family at an adjusted seasonal rate.
