We aim to connect people to the story of their food from farm to plate; to nature, especially their local environment and to each other, creating a more cohesive community. With four sites and a diverse neighborhood, the Farm is an ideal venue for educational activities and exploration in an outdoor environment.
We offer fun packed educational visits for groups of up to 35 children at a time. Visits can include a tour of the farm, a mini-beast adventure, natural crafts, bush crafts and other outdoor learning activities. Further below you’ll find a non-exhaustive list of activities offered to school groups.
