CCE Program Survey
A Message from Chuck Brooks, Executive Director
As we begin our fourth year as “Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties,” our CCE Board and staff want to make sure we provide the best programs and services for the residents of our community. What better way to find out this information than to ask you directly? Whether you are a current participant in CCE programs or a future participant, your feedback is important to us!
We ask you to take a few moments to complete the brief “2015 CCE Community Program Survey.” We are using an on-line survey tool that will keep this information confidential and all responses are anonymous (unless you want to share your contact information at the end of the survey).
The results of the survey will be used to help us develop new programs and services for the residents of our community.
To participate in our survey, please go to the following link. Click here to take our survey.
Thank you for helping the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties to fulfill its mission of putting “knowledge to work in pursuit of economic vitality, ecological sustainability and social well-being. We bring local experience and research based solutions together, helping New York State families and communities thrive in our rapidly changing world.”
Summer Farmers Children's Program
Children who participate in the Summer Farmers will grow their own vegetables, herbs, and flowers on an organic farm, then eat what they grow with tasty recipes like cool cucumber mint soup, pico de gallo salsa, berry popsicles, garden fresh pizza, and lots more. The program will also feature investigations into ecology, science & math, and literacy through fun, hands-on learning in the children's garden.
Six week-long sessions will begin July 13 and run through August 19.
- Young Farmers (ages 8-11) will meet on Mondays from 9am-12pm - $60 per child
- Bean Sprouts (ages 5-7) on Tuesdays from 9am-12pm - $60 per child
- Sweet Peas (ages 3-4) a parent/child program on Wednesdays from 10am-11:30am - $40 per child.
- One week-long end of summer session is also available from August 24-27 for Summer Farmers (ages 6-11) Monday-Thursday from 9am-12pm - $40 per child.
The program is being coordinated by Jaime Winans-Solis. Jaime, a native of Catskill, has been designing and leading programs to connect children with nature for 15 years. She holds degrees in ecology and education, most recently completely a Ph.D. at Texas A&M University—Corpus Christi. Winans-Solis was formerly the executive director of the Odyssey After School Enrichment Program and conservation educator of the Welder Wildlife Foundation, both in south Texas.
