Spring! Planting Tours
All of our teachings comply to Ontario’s educational curriculum for Science & Technology as well as health and physical activity.
An exploration of the growing cycle provides an opportunity for children to learn about growing fruits, grains, and vegetables on the farm. The farmer will explain the importance of each season (Spring/Planting, Summer/Growing, Fall/Harvest, Winter/Rest).
Children will learn about grain seeds and their everyday uses. Farm animals and their habits will be explored with a walking tour of the animal pens. Lastly a wagon/train ride will give visitors a look at the whole farm operation, which includes an apple orchard, various fruit, vegetable and grain fields, the sugar bush and the opportunity to pick or plant their own fruit or vegetables.
For the older children, we will explore a comparison of rural and urban life based on the unique perspective of farmers and farm life in the 21st century. As well, we will discuss the vast technology changes in farming over the years and investigate environmental issues such as climate change and its immense impact on growing food and healthy living.
