The Northey Street City Farm (NSCF) Earth Kids school holiday program 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. It's also about connecting to place and fostering a love and care for the Earth and its beings in the children.
It's an experiential program of outdoor discovery in which children learn about the animals and plants at the Farm through observation and supported questioning, experiment with Earth Arts and bush craft skills, and put permaculture into practice.
Earlybird prices close 12th April.
