For children and their families, all ages welcome. We’ll cook delicious healthy snacks from seasonally selected fresh ingredients (from the farm’s gardens, whenever possible). We will be using our five senses (hearing, sight, smell, taste, touch); recognising what’s healthy and what’s not; practicing new skills, experimenting with ingredients and mixing in some fun.

Recent activities include digging for gold (potatoes), making radish dolls, throwing farm made seed bombs, giving corn stalks to farm cow, Shirley (an annual treat she remembers!) and leaf rubbing on Birch bark with wax crayons. Everyone welcome from toddlers to great grandparents and experienced horticulturists to those who just enjoy digging a bit of dirt!
