Educational packages:

Healthy growing: This gets students to examine the plant lifecycle and how it relates to us: How do we plant? Learn the parts of the plant. What parts of plants do we eat? What do the students eat? Activities include making a hanging mini shamba with lettuce, tomato and spring onions. This enables students take a garden to grow at home. (Bring your own empty plastic bottle.)

Waste: learn about REJECT, REDUCE, RE-USE, RECYCLE, ROT in your community (programs by the 'Happy Green World Foundation').

From farm to plate: harvest your own vegetables from the farm and prepare healthy farmfood together with your group. Choose from rhubarb-desert, vegetable peanut soup, rhubarb-lemonade, pizza-package on the fire, farmers' omelet, do-it-yourself salad, bake your own bread on a stick.

Vegetable knowledge: do the photo challenge to test your knowledge about vegetables. Harvest some vegetables and learn about different types of vegetables and their benefits for your health.

Bee farming: : Did you know that bees are the only insects that produce food for human consumption? If bees disappeared, humans would not survive for more than four years on earth. Honey bees are an integral part of humanity and a necessity in agriculture as pollinators. In conjunction with African Bee Farmer (www.africanbeefarmer.org), we have our own beehives where your class can learn more about the amazing bee.

If you like to have a specific lesson on topical areas/areas of interest, get in touch with us and we'll be happy to personalize your visit. We're also keen on connecting the lessons we offer at the farm with the subjects you're currently covering in the classroom.
