Description

We think that its important for kids to know where their food comes from and the work that goes into producing it. We are striving to give a friendly, informative, hands-on tour of our farm where we explain the process from seed to plant to vegetable. The kids will be able to touch, smell and taste their way through our 12 acre farmlands, and the opportunity to meet our pigs, chickens and sheep.

The Green Connect farm has been operating for almost five years now and we are proud to say that we have transformed an urban piece of overgrown and forgotten wasteland into a luscious, thriving permaculture farm, just behind Warrawong High School. On our farm experience, we invite children from the age of 3 years and up (accompanied by a parent or carer) for a 1 hour tour including a taste of something from the farm and a planted seed to grow at home.

Group tours are limited to 10 kids at a time (not including accompanied adults).

Younger siblings are allowed to come along (under 3 year olds free of charge), but please note that the farm is not readily accessible by pram.

To book a private group tour, email fairfood@green-connect.com.au
