Event description
Mini Farmers introduces children to real life farming. They get their hands dirty and learn many aspects of organic and sustainable farming.

About this event

Tuesday 25th January 2022 @ 9am – 3pm

The kids become mini farmers and get set to work doing farm chores. On our tour we check in on the pigs and bees and restock our pet chicken’s bedding, ensure they have fresh drinking water and collect the eggs. We work on our dedicated Farm Kids garden plot, digging, weeding and harvesting. We tend to our onsite worm Subpod and collect macadamia nuts from the orchard. If the opportunity arises, the children assist the farmers with their chores. They cook, craft and create and see where their food comes from as well as experience countless opportunities to learn about teamwork, community, and ethical farming practices.

What is included?

Our Mini Farmers Program introduces children to real life farming. They get their hands dirty and learn many aspects of organic and sustainable farming.

Farm Chores

We start with a hands on fun tour of the farm, checking the pigs and bees and restocking our pet chicken’s bedding, we ensure they have fresh food and drinking water and we collect the eggs. We tend to our onsite worm Subpod and If the opportunity arises, we assist the farmers with their chores.

We work on our dedicated Farm Kids garden plot and harvest the produce if it is ready. If there are tasks available, we will also work alongside Liberation Larder on their market garden and learn how proper nurturing leads to healthy food production for families in need in our community. (Tasks will vary depending on what is needed to do at that time)

Discussion Focus

Foods that enhance flavour and smell.

Cooking

  • We make Butter, Pesto or Nut Butter from scratch to put on The Bread Social’s, freshly baked bread for afternoon tea.
  • We make a natural herb/lemony/drink from what we can forage in our garden.

Creating

  • We paint and create a planter and/or a mini herb garden which the kids can replant at home to start their very own garden.
  • We make lip balm
  • We make cute little herb flavoured soaps to take home out of natural products.

Rest and Play

Of course, we let the kids have breaks and rest throughout the day. We have a beautiful collection of books and some games and if time permits the children can have some free craft time and play games in the orchard.
