Event description

Welcome to our School Excursion bookings at Collingwood Children's Farm!

Collingwood Children’s Farm is a not-for-profit inner-city farm that provides green space for students and community members to grow their understanding of and connection to animals and nature. Situated on the banks of the Birrarung, the Farm promotes life-long learning towards an environmentally sustainable future and respect for the Traditional Owners of the land we farm on, the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung People.

Designed by our on-ground educators, our Education Program is informative, engaging and interactive. Students are invited to take part in and learn about the food system and its impact on the world they live in through Farm tours and hands-on workshops aligned to the Victorian Curriculum.

  • This option is suitable for attendees with a substantial travel time to the Farm. There is flexibility under Option C for attendees to specify their excursion start from the following options (in advance): 10.15 am, 11.30 am or 12.45 pm. Attendees are expected to arrive thirty minutes before their chosen excursion time for a strict start and finish. This gives you time to check in at Reception, familiarise yourself with the facilities and have a bathroom or snack break before your excursion begins.
  • Late arrival may result in the shortening of activities.
  • There will be time after your tour or workshop for the group to have a snack or lunch. Please bring your own food with you.
  • Your class completes a one-hour session covering a Farm tour or a hands-on workshop. Your group will then be free to explore the rest of the Farm independently at your leisure.
  • Your tour or workshop will be facilitated by a Collingwood Children’s Farm staff member.
  • Your tour or workshop will relate to your chosen education theme. For Meet and Greet and Paddock to Plate excursions, your workshop will include potting up a seedling to take back to school with you.
