SESSION OUTLINES

+ URBAN FARM ADVENTURE

Geography // Features of Places
Children take a tour of the farm and learn about the methods we use to take care of the land where we are growing. They’ll get to observe and discuss native bees, beneficial flowers, chooks and a range of vegetables. Might even be able to get into some weeding... if they’re lucky.
Time: 2 hours // Cost: $15 per child (minimum cost $300)

+ SUSTAINABILITY – WHAT THE?

Geography / The Earth's Environment
What does ‘sustainable’ actually mean? Children hear this word thrown around on a daily basis. But what does it really mean? Students learn about the true definition, workshop the ‘ethics triangle’ and learn about how Pocket City Farms has adopted sustainable practices and principles to protect and improve our patch of land.
Time: 2 hours // Cost: $15 per child (minimum cost $300)

+ THE FOOD WASTE LOOP

Science // Living World
Children learn how to reduce their food waste at home and build their school a worm farm, so the learnings from the day can be put into practice. They learn about the benefits of worms and compost for soil.
Time: 2 hours // Cost: $15 per child (minimum cost $300)

+ TOUGH AUSTRALIAN PLANTS

Science // Living World
Because of Australia’s geographical location, we have some of the most resilient vegetation on the planet. Learn why and how they survive in such harsh conditions. Children create an advertisement on a particular native plant they have learnt about and how truly awesome they are.
Time: 2 hours // Cost: $15 per child (minimum cost $300)

+ SUSTAINABILITY PROJECT

4 x 90 MINUTE SESSIONS, THROUGHOUT THE TERM OR ONE FULL DAY.

Oh The Possibilities!
After an intro to Pocket City Farms and a chat about how we saw a need in the community waiting to be filled, students take a tour of the farm. They look at the recycled materials and energy capturing systems on site and get their eco-innovative minds bubbling.

Students Turned Urban-Eco-Crusaders (x 2 sessions)
Students are posed the question 'What is a particular social or environmental need in your community?' They’ll break into groups to begin their design process, following the STEAM model to plan collaboratively. They can use natural materials to create a model of their designs or create a labelled diagram/diorama.

It’s Go Time!
Students present their ideas and designs to either a local government or council member or a Pocket City Farms member of staff for feedback and future possibilities.
4 x 90 minute sessions, spread throughout the term or on one full day.
$40 per student / minimum 20 students - $800
