Our Farm Education Programme invites students of all ages to observe and interact with the natural environment. The garden is a valuable model for the cycles and structures that make up the world around us, demonstrating all manner of concepts from environmental and ecological to scientific, mathematics, social, cultural and more!
Our aim is to make Kelmarna’s unique resources available to provide interactive, hands-on learning experiences in the garden that guide students to explore, discover and have fun! We are keen to help get your students outside, learning valuable skills and relating their experiences in the garden to not only their studies but also their everyday lives.
We are available to host regular visits (weekly or fortnightly, for example) for ongoing lessons and unit plans, or we can arrange one-off visits that can help accommodate your busy schedule and still give your students the opportunity to visit our farm for a workshop.
We have a number of pre-planned sessions that we can deliver for you, or can work with you to develop a meaningful session that will address your particular learning objectives, as well as engaging and inspiring your students. We have tailored sessions for groups from pre-school up to high school age, as well as a range of community groups (scouts/guides etc).
In order to sustain our programme, we charge a small fee based on the number of students, and duration of your visit. This helps to cover the costs of our staff and volunteer time involved, as well as contributing to the wider expenses of running our community farm.
If you are concerned that cost could be a barrier to your visit, please get in touch. Our main focus is getting your kids outside, curious, and involved, so we are open to working out a koha that is equitable to your situation wherever possible.
If you are keen to find out more about content and pricing, or book a visit, please get in touch with our Farm Education Coordinator, Sean, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
