School Holiday Farm Workshops

Monday 3 January to Sunday 23 January 2022

Join Homegrown Organics for fun and adventure these school holidays, with unique nature-based farm workshops for children and their families throughout January.

Kids in the Garden

Have fun exploring the wonders of nature that make our food grow. 🌱

The playground for the day is the commercial organic veggie garden. Kids will learn the basics of how to prepare garden beds, plant seeds, raise and transplant seedlings, look after plants, how and when to harvest veggies in season.

Children will forage for their lunch and prepare a garden to plate meal for you!

Suitable for 4 to 15 year olds.

Kids in the Bush

An outdoor adventure that builds resilience and teaches basic bush survival skills. 🌳

Equipped with a map, compass and a bunch of enthusiasm, the young explorers are ready to go! Heading off with their experienced guides on their adventure filled mission, they will learn basic survival skills as they have loads of fun and make new friends along the way.

Suitable for 6 to 15 year olds.

Kids under the Stars

A family night around the campfire, cooking damper and jaffles, and sleeping in swags. πŸ•οΈ

The campsite is in the grove next to the market garden, so you don’t need to completely rough it, with toilets and a hot shower nearby. If you’ve never camped before, this authentic and safe camping experience might be the first of many family camping trips!

The Kids under the Stars experience is for the whole family to relax and enjoy the great outdoors.

School Holiday Workshops

Homegrown Organics School Holiday Workshops are suitable for different ages, with the option for parents to leave children or stay and participate. Children under 8 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Bookings essential as places are limited.

Be sure to also check out our holiday programs andΒ what’s on for more school holiday inspiration.

“We have loved living here with our 6 kids since 2008, firstly in a camper van in the grove where our campsites are, then in a caravan while we built our house. Our kids have grown up roaming all 273 acres on foot and horseback, learning how to make their own fun, how to make things, how to work, how to grow their own food, and how to be good citizens. Now it is time for us to share the joy of this place with you and your kids.”
