Seasonal Visit Programme

Book and pay for three or more seasonal visits in September and receive a 10% discount.

Bring learning outside the classroom all year round at our city farm.

We encourage schools to make seasonal visits so children can see the changing seasons and produce available. We find this deeply embeds the science they experience over time.

Visit 1 Sept/ Oct: Garden tasting and cooking with produce from the gardens. What’s seasonal and healthy to eat?

Visit 2 Feb/March: Seed sowing and farm tour. Where does our food come from?

Visit 3 April/May: Pond dipping and mini beasts. Explore lifecycles and what a habitat is.

Visit 4 June/July: Pick It Eat It – harvest and cook the vegetables you have grown. Pollination, introduction to vegetable families and which parts of a plant we eat.

“Each session gave the children the opportunity to really get involved and get a strong sense of what it means to run a farm, grow fruit and veg and look after animals. The fact that they had  visits spread out over a series of months was key to this, because the children got to see the farm change and grow over time. To end on a picking and cooking session was just amazing.”
