Urban Farm Play Day - School Holiday Tour & Workshop

Come and explore our vibrant urban farm and enjoy some nature craft activities these school holidays.

The sessions are suited to children aged 4-8 or 8-12.

Perth City Farm is a 26 year old Urban Farm that provides space and opportunities to build community connections, and educates and enables people to live sustainably. Founded 26 years ago on the site of a former battery recycling facility, this once toxic site has been lovingly rehabilitated over many years to become a Western Australian icon for environmental sustainability and community engagement.

We love to show children around the farm and will cover themes including:

- Food production: veggie growing, fruit trees, medicinal herbs
- Waste management: compost, worm farms, recycling centre
- Animals: chickens, ducks and bees and their care
- Outdoor art: street art, mosaics, sculpture
- History of the farm as a volunteer lead community project
- Hands-on craft/ gardening activities

A parent or Caregiver must accompany their child/children to the session, and stay onsite for the duration- we recommend hunkering down in our cafe. Please dress for the weather.

All parking around City Farm is paid on weekdays and it can be hard to find a vacant spot. But we're right next to Claisebrook train station and on the free Yellow CAT bus route so catching public transport can be part of the day's adventure.
