Kia ora and welcome
We spend our days passionately showing children, parents and the community where their food comes from, and how to eat nutritionally well through after school, holiday and food workshop programmes.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMMES
As part of a small group, children will have one on one exposure to daily life on a small farm. They will acquire life skills that will give them confidence for the challenges in today’s world.
HOLIDAY EDUCATION PROGRAMMES
An outdoor interactive Holiday Programme where children can be children with nature, our farm and family life. There is the opportunity for horse riding, interaction with our animals, gardening and food production.
SCHOOL ECE FIELD TRIPS
Our ECE School Trips are outdoors and interactive. We cater to children of all ages from day care through to high school level.
Gardening Clubs , Community Groups , Private Education Providers
If you have a specific area of interest such as gardening or probiotic foods, let us know.
OUTDOOR CLASSROOM REQUIRED
As part of our learning experience for our outdoor holiday and after school activities we have been using two very old (over 50yrs) scout/army style tents. However after a several years of being exposed to the elements, they are now beyond repair. Our wish list has included a Tipi or yurt from which to base our activities and to extend to hosting overnight stays for our wonderful volunteers.
Jaia Tipis make a 5 metre tipi that would suit our needs perfectly. Jaia Tipis are New Zealand made!
We have just learned of a friend selling one in as new condition, including floor and potbelly fire for less than half the cost of a new one!! Naturally we would love to take advantage of such a great deal and provide a new welcoming space for our next holiday programme beginning 16 April 2018.
Fermented foods used on a daily basis restore all the good bacteria and organisms that we need in our gut and intestinal tract, promoting friendly bacteria. These foods are what are known as functional foods and are very probiotic.View More
