Collingwood Children’s Farm is a not-for-profit inner-city farm that provides green space for students and community members to grow their understanding of and connection to animals and nature. Situated on the banks of the Birrarung, the Farm promotes life-long learning towards an environmentally sustainable future and respect for the Traditional Owners of the land we farm on, the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung People.
Designed by our on-ground educators, our Education Program is informative, engaging and interactive. Students are invited to take part in and learn about the food system and its impact on the world they live in through Farm tours and hands-on workshops aligned to the Victorian Curriculum.
Join us at the Farm! Simply pick your preferred educational theme and the option that suits your class size (including adults) from the descriptions below and book online.

Make Your Booking
Bookings are made online only via Eventbrite. As such, payment must be made online to secure a booking.
Please include the number of adults accompanying students on your excursion as we cannot exceed the booking capacities below.
Once you’ve made your booking, we’ll send you a teacher resource to support further learning and a document that outlines the key logistical, behavioural and safety information to read and understand before your visit. If you are booking on behalf of a school, please ensure that the staff attending the booking receive this document so that they can arrive prepared.
A discussion with students about interacting with animals in a calm and safe manner is encouraged to ensure everyone enjoys their visit to the Farm.
Please read the Supporting Documents, which includes guidance for teachers’ risk assessments, and the Terms and Conditions below.
If you have any questions, our friendly Reception team can help you.
Thank you for your support! Your bookings help us to fund and care for the animals, land and programs that make Collingwood Children’s Farm a place for community through social inclusion.
