Autumn Earth Kids
Earth Kids at Northey Street City Farm in Windsor is an experiential program of outdoor discovery that supports children to become ‘nature smart’.
 
Earth Kids is about supporting children to have the knowledge, understanding, and skills to engage in creating a more sustainable world – in a fun and interactive way.
 
This is an experiential program 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 children aged 7 to 12 years of age, and goes from Tuesday to Thursday from 9am to 3pm each day (drop off from 8.30am and pick up until 3.15pm).
 
Each program differs according to the seasons and includes a diversity of activities. Some of the activities are:
  • Gardening – planting, harvesting, composting, bush tucker and learning about seasonal changes
  • Bushcraft – building shelters, making string, making fires;
  • Ecoarts – creativity using natural materials;
  • Indigenous understanding – storytelling, cultural sharing;
  • Earth connection – ‘magic spots’, mapping, wandering and other activities to support understanding of the web of life and the elements that all life is made of.
