Farm Kids School Holiday Flowers Workshop – December 31st

9.30am – 12.30pm, ages 4 to 12 yrs

We start the workshop with an educational, hands on and fun tour of The Farm where we specifically search for and focus our discussion on Flowers. We examine parts and purposes of flowers, we smell and taste edible flowers and learn about companion planting. In craft we make bath bombs using flower essences and plant flower seeds in trays to start our own flower garden.

What is included?

Farm Kids tour:
At the beginning of each workshop we take the children on an educational and fun tour of The Farm. We educate them about our cows, pigs, bees, chickens, flower crops, herb garden, orchard and veggie crops. We discuss concepts like paddock rotation for the animals, pollination, organic farming, healthy soil and composting and other ethical farming practices. The children get up close and personal with our pet chickens and see how the commercial chicken caravan works. The children pick and taste veggies, edible flowers and herbs.

Discussion Focus: Flowers. We discuss the parts and purpose of flowers. Taste edible flowers, examine the benefits of planting certain types of flowers to attract bees and beneficial bugs.
