PEACE Farm Holiday Farm Play

One event on April 11, 2018 at 9:00 am
Holiday Farm Play returns with two dates this Easter holidays, Monday 9th and Wednesday 11th April. Come and experience the beauty and stillness of nature at PEACE farm, a beautiful permaculture farm in Yarra Junction, where children can feel connected to the seasons, nature, farm animals, and how food is grown. On Monday morning we will be looking at seasonal eating and harvest to table, experiencing the tastes, smells and touch of the veggies, herbs and flowers in our mandala and market gardens. We will then pick and prepare the food for our lunch together. Wednesday morning the focus is on nature crafting. We will be hearing the story of the rainbow serpent and creating our sock serpents, nature-dyeing, creating beautiful Autumn Suncatchers and co-creating a Nature Mandala. We will enjoy a delicious lunch together (pumpkin soup harvested from the garden, freshly baked ‘snake’ rolls, cake and herb tea which the children can help prepare if they wish.) After lunch on both days we will head through the farm (meeting our friendly chickens and goats on the way), and down to the forest to have stories, games, craft and free-play. Optional home time is at 3pm or stay for a relaxing sound bath and drum journey finishing at 4pm.
