Earth Kids is about supporting kids 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 week 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 kids aged 7 to 12 years of age, and goes from Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm each day (drop off from 8.30am and pick up until 3.30pm). After the last day there will be a celebration with parents and families.

The parents handbook and enrolment form can be found at:

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;

  • Earth Arts – creativity using natural materials;

  • Indigenous understanding – storytelling and cultural sharing;

  • Earth connection – daily ‘magic spots’, mapping, wandering and other activities to support understanding of the web of life and the elements that all life is made of.
