Diversity scholarships for Blandford summer camp program

Field & Fire Bakery & Cafe has teamed up with Blandford Nature Center to offer a diversity scholarship for their summer camp program. In anticipation for a busy registration period, and in efforts to make summer camp more accessible to all, Blandford Nature Center has opened their camp scholarship, or “Campership”, application early. Due to the generosity of donors, Blandford is able to offer a limited number of scholarships to campers who might otherwise not have the means to go to camp.

Apply for a “Campership”  and Blandford will send you a confirmation before registering to reduce or eliminate your camp registration fee. Please note that these take time to process and should be done as soon as possible to ensure they are processed before camp registration opens and fills. APPLY HERE

The first plant distribution earleier in May included plants suited to cooler weather such as greens and kohl varieties. Blandford’s Farmer Aaron shared tips on planting and caring for each food plant.

OKT intern, Brooklyn Nicks, was in charge of sowing and growing the food plants in the Blandford Farm greenhouse. Wow Brooklyn! You did good!
