  • Bringing the farm and fun to you! Twice a month, we will pose a new challenge or activity that can be done from home. After trying out the activity, youth are encouraged to join us for a community share on Zoom. Check out our Fun Things to Do for more information and to sign up.

    This week’s challenge is Community Mapping. What makes your neighborhood or community unique? For this activity, we will spend a bit of time reflecting on what’s around us.


    How to do it:

    1. Take a walk around your neighborhood or look out a window. What is a community? What is important in your community (parks, libraries, corner stores, backyard gardens, the spot where you cross the street, people….)? Make a list if that’s helpful.

    2. Draw a picture or map of your community. Include anything important. You can map a large area or a small area. Feel free to label, color, or express in any way that works for you.

    3. Share your Community Map with a friend or family member. Would they include anything different?

    4. Take a picture of your Community Map to share and send it to by July 8.

    OUR COMMUNITY SHARE ZOOM CALL WILL BE ON ON JULY 8TH! We will be sharing how this week’s challenge went and learning more about each other’s communities. We will also get a chance to virtually visit the 21 Acres Farm!

    This Zoom call is geared toward youth. All ages and experience are welcome. We will be using the chat box feature on Zoom. If your child needs support, we recommend having an adult present or nearby. As always, accommodations can be made.
