Farm to Table

The Green River Preserve Farm provides organic produce and fresh eggs for our campers. Few camps have farm to table programs that help campers learn how to live a more sustainable lifestyle by growing what you eat. According to the New York Times, “The food Americans eat travels an average of 1,500 miles before reaching the table.” Eating food raised locally reduces reliance on fossil fuels, encourages outdoor exercise and reduces eating foods that contain high-fructose corn syrup and trans-fats, both of which are linked to obesity and heart disease, in studies cited by the Times.
