Green Science Adventure Camp Week 1 Day 5

It’s Friday! And what a great week we had at Tollgate!

This morning, we learned about bugs. What environmental adaptations (wings, 6 or 8 legs, pincers, stripes, etc) did your camper add to their bug?

Then they went on a bug hike to look at bugs around the farm.

The peppers found centipedes, spiders, lady bugs, caterpillars, and many other bugs to observe with a magnifying glass.

Campers created asparagus rafts in garden kitchen.

Here is the recipe for this delicious treat!

Asparagus Rafts

16 Thick asparagus spears
1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp dark sesame oil
1 clove of garlic (minced)
Cooking spray
2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
┬╝ tsp pepper
Dash of salt

Heat up the grill. Snap off the tough ends of the asparagus and line up side by side, 3-4 asparagus spears, so that they are touching each other. Run skewer through the asparagus near the top and bottom. Combine soy sauce, sesame oil and garlic. Brush on top of asparagus rafts. Grill about 3 minutes on each side until crisp tender. Sprinkle sesame seeds and salt.

Here are some photo highlights from this week!
