Our educational programs have been developed in consultation with conservationists, agriculturalists and teachers and aim to develop an environmental awareness in children of all ages.

We are able to provide a wide range of activities for children from pre-school and throughout the primary years.

“Our team is available to discuss tailor-made programmes best suited to your class.”

For children in secondary school, our educational tours are led by experts in the fields of oenology, viticulture, permaculture and gardening, bee-keeping, olive oil production, as well as conservation and environmental awareness.

PROGRAMME

“5 Senses in Nature”

When: All year round
Where: Olive grove; Petting farm; Vegetable garden; Children’s garden

Designed especially for children in nursery and kindergarten, this program takes the children on a journey to discover their five senses. Starting at the beehives we explore sight from the perspective of an insect and, moving from station to station, we experience each of our senses, ending with taste in the vegetable garden.

PROGRAMME

“A Day on The Farm”

When: All year round
Where: Farm

The children become farm helpers for the day. They feed the animals, collect ripe vegetables and plant seasonal seeds in the garden. They discover where oil and honey come from and how the insects and creatures we see are farm helpers too. The day ends with a picnic in the children’s garden.
