Description

DATES: 11th August, 8th September, 13th October, 10thNovember and 8th December, 2017.

The NSCF Earth Kids monthly program for homeschoolers is about supporting kids 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 program of outdoor discovery in which kids will learn about the animals and plants at the Farm through observation and supported questioning, explore Indigenous knowledge, experiment with Earth Arts and bushcraft skills, and put permaculture into practice.

The program is for kids aged 6 to 12 years of age, and is being held on the second Friday of the month from August to December, from 9am to 3pm each day. Parents with younger children are welcome to join the free playgroup held at the farm on Fridays while the Earth Kids program is being run.
