This week your child will spend a magical week at the farm by the beach, Green Gulch Farm.  In helping with planting, harvesting and other farm activities, the campers will make observations that lead them to possible solutions to human problems, particularly the challenge to supply the world with food.  For example, counting the "waggles" and identifying directional, timing, and other information in the dance of the honeybees at the farm's apiary is an example of a math-based code for communication and distribution.   We will learn the value of meditation to creative design in the Zendo and explore the wilder side of the farm, including discovering newts, frogs and many species of birds and their adaptations, culminating in the making of our models.  We will spend each morning at the farm followed by a full afternoon of fun at Muir Beach in the afternoon with boogieboarding and beach games.  DROP OFF/PICK UP:  Mill Valley Middle School Skate Park
