2x 1-hour sessions
Ideal for 2 classes – max 60 people, including adults
Available Monday – Thursday| duration 2.5hrs between 10am & 2pm
Two classes rotate between two activities, consisting of:
- Farm tour
- Hands-on workshop
With greater time flexibility, Option B may suit schools, kindergartens and ELCs with greater travel time to Abbotsford as well as those with 60 people or fewer. You may specify a start time between 10am and 11am with the session running for 2.5 hours. Please arrive 30 minutes before your start time to allow for a toilet stop and to walk to the Education area for a snack break.
Your classes will be split into two groups, rotating between a Farm tour and a hands-on workshop, with each rotation lasting 60 minutes (plus a short break in between).
Your workshop will be facilitated by a Collingwood Children’s Farm staff member and will relate to your chosen education theme. For Meet and Greet and Paddock to Plate, this will include potting up a seedling to take back to school. For Farm a Better Future, this will include a hands-on soil-health workshop.
Upon booking, you will be sent a document containing important logistical information and a teacher resource to support further learning back at school.
Prior to your visit, it is essential that all teachers read this document to understand expectations around supervision while on the farm. A discussion around behaviour expectations with students and the importance of interacting with the animals calmly and safely makes for a better experience for all involved!
Collingwood Children’s Farm is a non-profit community organisation.
Your excursion fee keeps our Education Program financially sustainable and helps us to care for our animals, conserve these heritage farmlands and fund inclusive farm programs that support people in the community experiencing adversity.
Thank you for your support!
