School Visits & Learning Activities

We aim to connect people to the story of their food from farm to plate; to nature, especially their local environment and to each other, creating a more cohesive community. With four sites and a diverse neighbourhood, the Farm is an ideal venue for educational activities and exploration in an outdoor environment.
