Students grind their own flour for pizza created with ingredients harvested from the farm.

Bethel high school students serve as camp counselors, and partners from the OSU Extension Service lead nutrition and cooking classes.

Camp at the Bethel Farm ends with a family night, complete with a free Farmers Market.
