Event description

Description

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 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 children aged 7 to 12 years of age, and goes from Tuesday to Thursday from 9am to 3pm each day (drop off from 8.30am and pick up until 3.15pm). A limited number of one day options are also available.

The parents handbook and enrolment form can be found at: http://www.nscf.org.au/home/learn/youth-education/holiday-programs/

For any enquiries, please email: Emma at education@nscf.org.au.

Each program differs according to the seasons and to include a diversity of activities. Some of the activities will be:

  • Gardening – planting, harvesting, composting, bush tucker and learning about seasonal changes;

  • Bushcraft - building shelters, making string, making fires;
