We love getting kids out to the farm and into our gardens. Help us spread the word about some upcoming Family-Friendly Workbees.Imagine how much more fun weeding will be when we are surrounded by the joyful enthusiasm of youngsters.
The family-friendly workbees this summer will be like our regular workbees but also include special activities for kids–games and explorations in the garden, as well as some kid-sized garden work. Jillian Wheatley, our school garden coordinator will fearlessly lead the curiosity-inspiring fun with help from our summer intern and volunteers.

The activities are geared toward children 5-12. (younger children are invited to participate if accompanied by a parent.) Kids will learn about what’s growing, pollinators, compost and all things farmy. Each session will be different so come as often as you can!

Parents (neighbours, grandmas, uncles or any other adult caregiver) should plan to stay on the farm during the session and join the fun.
