Children don’t need more things.
The best toys a child can have is a parent who gets down on the floor and plays with them.
– Bruce Perry –
“Today’s young people are growing up in a frontier with characteristics such as detachment from the source of food, the virtual disappearance of the farm family, the end of biological absolutes, an ambivalent new relationship between humans and other animals, new suburbs with shrinking open space.” – Last Child in the Woods.
Ecotheologian Thomas Berry advocated teaching children about the natural world should be seen as one of the most important events in their lives.
So come March school holidays, other than signing up for our regular workshops, we urge you to join us for a Parent & Child Urban Farm Exclusive where we will show you and your kids how to have fun in nature!
The 2-hr session will consist of a garden tour, hands-on paint-your-pot workshop, followed by a workshop on how to seed, harvest and eat from your own urban farm. At a great value of $120 per parent and a child, you get to be away from the hustle and bustle of city life to have fun in nature. Cost includes:
- Urban Farm Workshop for a parent and an accompanying child
- Hands-on paint-my-pot activity
- Garden Tour with harvest (subject to seasonality)
- Hands-on Seed-an-edible-garden workshop with germination kit
- Make-Your-Own Sandwich Bento with Marmalade Jam, cut fruits with freshly harvested sprouts and a glass of Ribena drink or Hot Chocolate (Child)
- Artisanal Tea/Coffee with snacks (Parent)
You can also add $40 if you would like a parent to join in the fun. (No additional workshop materials will be provided. Artisanal Tea/coffee and snacks will be served). Or add a child for only $60 for a full set of workshop materials with food and drinks. Just click on the add-on option.
It will be a meaningful time well spent.
The workshop is opened to children age 7 and above. Sign up now.
Through that session, I got to understand Faith a tad more.Lynn with daughter Faith
It’s a reminder to me as a mom, to respect Faith as a unique individual, and to help her discover and nurture her talent(s).
I was a proud mama and learnt from this experience that we should never belittle the capabilities of our children.May with son Ewan
