Farm Kids School Holiday Veggies Workshop – January 16th

9.30am–12.30pm, ages 4 to 12 yrs

We start the workshop with an educational, hands on and fun tour of The Farm followed by a discussion and taste of veggies and herbs we have picked on the tour.   We work in our Farm Kids veggie plot and make a crafty and hilarious MR Potato head to take home.

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: Seasonal planting of crops and why climate is so important
We pick and taste veggies from the garden.
