About the Event

So, What exactly do we do?

We try to make each of our Workshop Sessions different to the last but, to a certain extent, our plans are dictacted by the weather we are given on the day.

Our activities include:

-Animal Care

  • Feeding and caring for our animals: Donkeys, Pigs, Sheep, Chickens, Ducks and Turkeys

-Woodland Hikes 

  • When on our trail, the children will learn to identify different species of both flora and fauna 
  • Our hikes go from our Farm in Shepton, all the way to Croscombe

-Sowing Seeds

  • The children will learn all about where fruit and vegetables come from and how to grow it themselves

-Crafting

  • During our crafting sessions, children may build bird boxes, insect habitats or test their skills in boat building to construct a craft that will float down our stream

-Art

  • Our art sessions encourage the children to paint, make and create things that they see around them; be that the landscape or one of the animals

-Dam Building

  • We are really fortunate to have many natural and man made streams in the woods that surrounds our farm. These give the children chance to get creative (& often very wet) in the skill of dam building. Often, the best part is breaking it down afterwards.

-Mindfulness 

  • Rock Farm Somerset (where we farm) is home to an amazing quarry which is a peaceful & magical place. Here is where we teach the children about mindfulness and meditation. We do this to give them a sense of their own mental awareness and the ability to calm when things get a bit much.

-Games in the Quarry

  • A firm Favourite with all the children is our Quarry Games. The last 30 minutes of each session give the kids chance to let off any remaining steam and play a multitude of games.
