Event description
FARM KIDS - Mini Farmers Term 2 Thursday Sessions (Native Bees)

About this event

Thursday June 10th 9am – 3pm

The kids become mini farmers and after a detailed tour get set to work doing farm chores. We collect eggs, restock our pet chickens bedding, ensure they have fresh water and clean out the coup. We work on our dedicated Farm Kids garden plot and tend to our onsite worm Subpod. If the opportunity arises, we assist the farmers with their chores. They forage, cook, make natural products, create and see where their food comes from as well as experience countless opportunities to learn about teamwork, community, and ethical farming practices.

Discussion

  • Native bee hunt touring the farm
  • Check in on the native bee hives
  • Explore the flower gardens to see the different bee types
  • Discuss yhe job of a native bee and all its characteristics
  • Talk about how bees make wax and its uses in society

Activities

  • We make a fabulous clay native bee hotel to take home
  • Work on garden plot: planting seedlings to attract the bees, weeding & watering
  • Collect eggs and check our chickens
  • We make Beeswax wraps. Each child will decorate their own piece of fabric and then turn it into a bees wax wrap to replace the dreaded plastic wrap
