Staying warm this winter doesn't mean sacrificing fun!  The ecology of the farm is ever-changing and it doesn't stop in the winter.  During this winter school break, join us for hands-on fun on the farm as we feed goats, collect chicken eggs, warm up in the Garden Kitchen learning about local and seasonal food, and explore the wild winter animals of the forest.  We have a theme to make each day full of adventure!  Does your school have only a few days off this week?  Check out our 2-day and 3-day options.   Registration deadline: Thursday, February 5, 2015.  Financial aid is available for all camps.  If you need to register after the deadline, please contact us.  Location:  MSU Tollgate, 28115 Meadowbrook Road, Novi.  Contact:  Mandy Jacobs, 248-347-0269 x 238.
