Farm Kids Seeds Workshop – December 17th

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 collect seeds followed by a discussion and demonstration on Seeds, where they come from and how they grow. In craft we use the seeds from our Sunflowers to make a birdfeeder. We plant seeds in trays for our garden and we make Nut butter.

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 chickens and see how the chicken caravan works. The children pick and taste veggies, edible flowers and herbs.

Discussion Focus: Seeds. We collect seeds and examine how plants reproduce. 

Cooking: We learn how to make nut butter.

Craft: We make a bird feeder out of the Sunflower seeds we collect.

Gardening: We plant seeds in trays for the kids to take home and grow in their own gardens.
