Full Day Farm Field Trip - A hands on u-pick experience for classes Gr. 4 to 12 - 5h

Full Day Farm Field Trip for classes Gr. 4 to 12. 5h.

1. We will start with exploring around the farm! From giving a kiss to the goats, to picking and tasting all the veggies in the garden using only their mouths, we are passionate about making every groups' experience hands-on, real, and engaging (about 1h).

2. Then, we will do a first activity on a specific topic (1h30), among the following:
  • Compost and Soil Sciences,
  • Bee Keeping and Pollinators,
  • Animals Husbandry,
  • Agriculture and Climate Change,
  • Baking Chicken Treats.
3. The students will enjoy their lunch around the fire pit! They can explore the farm by themselves and we could even roast marshmallows (45 min)!

4. In the afternoon, we will do a different activity on another topic (1h30).

5. We will finish the together around the fire pit to share experiences and reflections about the day (15min)!

During the activities, we will get to do some fun hands-on farming and trigger discussion about the chosen topic. Please, specify the topic you want to focus on when booking your field trip.

For groups of Grade 4 or younger, have a look at our "Classic Farm Field Trip" (1h30, K to 7).

The day of your visit...
Arrive at the scheduled time, unless you've arranged with us to come early. We will do our best to wait for your bus to arrive and greet you at the gate, but if you arrive stealthily and we miss you, just bring your group down the path and meet by the pond in the centre of the farm. After your program your group is more than welcome to stay a little while. Let us know how long you would like to stay and we will find a homebase for your group somewhere on the farm.

Bus Parking:
park on Balaclava St. just outside the gate at 6767 Balaclava, or on 51st Avenue just before the stop sign.

Payment:
$45/student, including GST. Min $540 (up to 12 students)

Give us a call to book your program and work out details. There is no charge for teachers and assistance. Additional parents pay their participation according to the program prices. We will send you an invoice soon after your call for the number of students you have in your class. It needs to be paid by the D-day.
