Kenscoff Environmental Summer Camp (7/12/09 - 7/19/09)
We first blogged about the Wynne Farm way back in December 2005. In that blog, Matt noted how important it is for children, in a country that depends on agriculture for survival, to understand the environment. Each Summer, COHEF (Children of Haitian Enhancement Foundation), the Unity Church of Miami, and the Wynne Farm Ecological Preserve hold a two week, nature intensive summer camp. If you would like to lend a hand, volunteers are needed as well as in kind and cash contributions. More information is below.
