Grace Springs Farm School Tours
We offer unique farm learning experiences to School groups.
There is so much to see and learn from here on our sustainable farm. We can run an informational and interactive tour for you, or we can work with you to design a tour to meet your specific learning objectives.
The farm is a fantastic base for unit studies. We are particularly geared for teaching science (biology, chemistry, physics), maths, geography (sustainable biomes), agriculture and art. We are currently working with a local Central Coast Agricultural High School as their 'Farm Case Study'. The school is able to bring the students back to the farm on a regular basis to build on their learning.
Virginia is currently studying a diploma in Holistic Management, and is able to draw from this amazing course to pass the information on to your students.
We can use the ducks, chooks, cows, calves, beehives, market garden, fencing & paddocks to facilitate learning.
We explain why we farm the way we do & what is involved in chemical free farming, farming on small acreage and marketing produce using collectives and direct marketing models.
We have a cafe within 400 metres of the farm where students can purchase lunch. We can organise for the lunches to be pre-ordered & delivered if that is more convenient.
We are more than happy to create a tour to suit your needs. Please call Virginia on 0425 258 699 if you would like to tailor a School Farm tour for your class.
