Children's Activities at the Farm

Let us take care of the mud so you don't have to!


We believe that growing food is good for kids and parents.  That's why we have programs that involve the whole family.  Most of us at Green Thumb are parents too - which means we are in the ring with you when it comes to finding fun and engaging activities that get the kids outside and active.

Our kids farm programs are our way to make it easier for parents to give their kids more green, less screen.

"Research shows that when children garden and grow their own fruits and vegetables,

they are more likely to snack on fruits and vegetables when they grow older."



Growing Made Simple
Bethan - Environmental Educator - Journaling with Nature

“⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
People LOVED the activities! There was so much joy from both kids and adults. People were talking about the colours and the shapes of the garden produce and the veggies they liked to eat most. Most people who sat down to do one activity ended up doing both, and lots of parents joined in alongside their kids. People loved taking the little seed packets with them and also, they loved pinning up their artwork on the mural too. The general feeling was that of joy, buzzing creative energy, and a sense of community as everyone was making something together.”

“It was amazing having all ages participate -from grandparents doing the activities with their grandchildren, to all ages of school children. It was buzzing, and such a positive experience seeing the children engage with the natural produce from the Farm.
