The world needs you now more than ever! Join Eco-Hero Eric on a radically sustainable adventure! Together we will explore exciting new solutions for the world’s biggest problems! We will participate in hands on workshops about Tiny Homes, radical recycling, growing our own food and much more! Be part of the solution.
We want everyone to have fun and be able to experience on their level! Though this camp is for 4th graders to post grads, we will break up into groups according to age and interest.
Love to eat?….Me too!
But where does our food come from?….. Let’s find out!
From the seed to plant to our plates. We are going to get our hands dirty and learn exactly what it takes to grow our own food. Then the exciting part, preparing and eating our meal together as a group.
Create arts and crafts with recycled materials:
You can make almost anything using recycled materials. In this hands on workshop we are going to take ordinary items and turn them in extraordinary things!
We will also learn how some companies are building houses using glass and plastic bottles, soda cans, car tires and much more!
Eco village workshop:
Together we will explore how eco villages and tiny homes are making the world a more harmonious place. Let’s look at 6 different designs that are revolutionizing the world as we know it.
As a special bonus, the group will have the opportunity to build a small model of a futuristic eco home called an “Earthship”.
