Earth Kids is about supporting children to become ‘nature smart’ – to have the knowledge, understandings and skills to engage in creating a more sustainable world – in a fun and interactive way.
This is an experiential outdoor discovery in which kids learn about the animals and plants at the Farm through observation and supported questioning, experiment with Earth Arts and bushcraft skills, and put permaculture into practice.
The program is for children aged 6 to 12 years of age. Families with younger children may like to join the free playgroup that is held at the farm on Tuesdays.
The hours are from 9.30am to 12.30pm each Tuesday for 6 weeks (arrival from 9.15am and pick up until 12.45pm). On the final day there will be an afternoon gathering with parents and families from 12.30pm – 1.30pm.
In this program, we’ll be participating in a native bee hive split, doing some planting and learning about plants at the farm, exploring ecoarts and nature journalling,doing nature awareness games and activities and much more!
