    Event description

    Children aged 6 to 12 learn from nature, explore permaculture, ecoarts, and bushcraft, and develop social and emotional skills at our 8-session Earth Kids homeschool program, running during the QLD school term.

    Earth Kids is all about supporting children to learn from and with the natural world in a fun, interactive, and inclusive environment. Parents can choose to drop off their children or stay with the group.

    The activities differ according to the season and may include:

    • Gardening – planting, harvesting, composting, learning about bush tucker and seasonal changes; exploring what's flowering or fruiting at the farm (and tasting what is fruiting!)

    • Earth connection – expanding the senses, wandering, nature journaling and doing other activities to support understanding of the web of life and the elements that all life is made of.

    • Indigenous understanding – storytelling, and cultural sharing.

    • Bushcraft - building shelters, making string, making campfires.

    • Ecoarts – creativity using natural materials.

    • And more - including cooking from food that has been harvested from the farm, games, and unstructured play.

    More information about the program, including our cancellation and no-show policy, is available in the Parents and Guardians Handbook: https://www.nscf.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2024/01/2024-January_NSCF-Earth-Kids-ParentsGuardians-Handbook.pdf
