A friend of mine owns Suzie’s Farm in San Diego. They are the newest kids on the San Diego Community Supported Agriculture scene and they rock.
They recently held their twin daughters’ 4-year-old birthday party down on the farm (doesn’t that sound wholesome?), where the kids got to eat pizzas fresh made from a kiva oven on the farm, run around in the dirt, consume copious amounts of frosting, and go treasure hunting on one of the fields. Apparently the kids – in this directed/mediated age – were asking for some kind of map or list. How would they would know what is a treasure they wanted to know. You’ll know it’s a treasure when you see it, they were told. Where would the treasures be, they wanted to know. That’s the hunting part of the treasure hunt, they were told.
So here’s some of what they unearthed as well as some other recent treasures in my own wanderings.
