polyfacehensOver the weekend I had the privilege of joining two other physicians for a visit to Polyface Farm in the Shenandoah Valley. Located in Swoope, VA just outside of Staunton, the Salatin family has developed Polyface Farm as a model of responsible, humane, and sustainable farming. If you have ever seen the documentary Food Inc., you may recognize Joel Salatin, owner of Polyface who is featured several times throughout the movie. He is also featured in Micheal Pollan's influential book, The Ominivore's Dilemma. Mr. Salatin has become outspoken in sharing his innovative chemical-free farming practices favoring natural ecosystems over large scale industrial farming.

If Pouches' experience at History Camp is any indication, your son or daughter will enjoy joining Washington Heritage Museums and the George Washington Foundation for History Camp in Fredericksburg. The week-long day camp will be held June 25-29, from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day.

Young historians discover American history with hands-on experiences as they walk in the footsteps where the history of Fredericksburg, and a budding America, was created. The camp complements the history taught in classrooms with activities such as soap making, code breaking, colonial crafts, penmanship and much more.
