Tuesday 2nd April (Easter holiday), 10am – 2pm

This activity day is designed for our younger farmers (6-8 years old). We’ll explore the farm and how we grow food through games and a range of practical activities with a Forest School twist.

We will be cooking snacks on an open fire however children will also need to bring their own packed lunch for the day.

Tutor: Claire Rosling

Claire is the Community Engagement Worker here at The Community Farm’s and has a range of experience in outdoor education including running a Forest School in Bristol. She will be running children’s activity days for us here at the farm during school holidays in addition to school trips during term-time.

How to book

Phone Emily on 0117 3643123 between 9am-3pm, Mon-Thur. Please have your card details ready.

Please note, this activity day is limited to just 10 children in order to enhance their learning experience so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Members and long term volunteers of the farm are given priority booking and 15% discount on prices. If you are interested in becoming a member, take a look at our Membership page.

 

Transport

To try and minimise our carbon footprint at the farm, we encourage people to either lift-share or to book onto a Community Transport Minibus. Provided we have a sufficient number of people booked onto the minibus, it will be picking up at Bristol hippodrome and Bristol Temple Meads. We ask for a contribution of £5 per adult to cover costs for the minibus.

If you are interested in lift-sharing or taking the mini-bus, please let us know when booking.

 

Lunch

For all of our courses and workshops we have a communal lunch where everyone brings something to share – we find this is a great way to gather a real community driven feast! We encourage everyone to make something vegetarian for the day so that as many people as possible are able to share the food.

Some ideas of things to bring include salads, bread, cheese, chutney, crisps, hummus or other spreads, soup, stew, cake… Any contribution will be a welcome addition to the feast!

We will provide refreshments and hot drinks during the day.
