Join us for this 6 week session (or a single week!) where your little ‘sprouts’ (age 5-7) will experience the tastes, smells, sounds, and feel of our certified organic farm. While actively exploring the camp gardens, farm fields, kitchen and greenhouses they will learn about how their food grows in a fun and interactive way. Arts & crafts, harvesting, tasting, and observing nature are just some of the highlights of this 6 week program. Each week a theme will guide our exploration, harvest, and activities. Expect your young ones to take home some fresh veggies to cook with at home. Bring a healthy snack if your child gets hungry between 9-12pm.

The young farmer’s program is perfect for 8-12 year olds who want to get their hands dirty, be outside in nature, learn more about how to grow their own food, and cook with it. This group will be seeding, tending and harvesting their own garden beds. In order to see how all our veggies grow, we go out on daily adventures to harvest veggies and see how they grow in the farm fields. There is nothing better than seeing a child harvest something themselves, and then decided 'its not so bad' before eating it! Weekly themes and educational topics will relate to the seasonal veggies available each week, and you can expect some veggies to come home with the campers. Young farmers will also learn more about how to turn what they grow into food they eat by observing and participating in our kitchen tasks certain weeks. BYO healthy lunch & water.
*Highly suggested that each camper participate as many sessions as possible to see the full season of crops on the farm & in their gardens.

SANG LEE GROWS NEXT BATCH OF EAST END FARMERS POSTED BY MICHAEL REID FROM EDIBLE EAST END JULY, 2015
Vegetables are important, but unless you’re completely self sufficient, even more vital is the farmer that grows them. At Sang Lee Farms, Lucy Senesac has pioneered a farm camp she hopes will teach participants appreciation for where their food comes from and grow the next generation of East End farmers.
Sang Lee Farms is ahead of the curve, whether by anticipating niche specialty food back in the ’50s as one of the major wholesale producers of Asian vegetables for the United States, being among the first batch of organic farms on the North Fork a or using the first FAA certified drone on the East End for crop management (and awesome footage). Now, in large part due to Lucy Senesac, who created the camp, farm education for children can be added to the growing list.READ MORE...
THESE YOUNG FARMERS WILL EAT AND PLANT THEIR VEGGIES POSTED BY CLAIRE LEADEN THE SUFFLK TIMES On JUNE, 2014
“Eat your vegetables.” The phrase may generate a certain queasy feeling in your stomach and an innate desire to defy your mother. Uttered sternly by countless moms over the years to kids of all ages, it’s easy to remember that nothing seemed worse than swallowing the last (or first) bite of broccoli or brussels sprouts. Lucy Senesac of Sang Lee Farms, however, is determined to change that healthy-eating stereotype. Sang Lee Farms in Peconic is running a Young Farmer’s Camp for 7- to 12-year-olds on Wednesdays through Aug. 13. Ms. Senesac began working at Sang Lee about four years ago and became eager to share her knowledge with kids.
