WHAT PARENTS SAY

It has been a great experience for all of us. My two sons were so eager to learn about growing the plants, being mindful towards nature and their surroundings.  We will definitely start building our own compost. My 5 year old has already told me to put the banana skin on the compost. We can't  wait to join you for the next holidays again!

My children had the most wonderful time at the farm. They were surrounded by fresh air and happiness. it was great that my children got to do things at the farm which are often difficult to do at home. They were both full of smiles and thoroughly tired when they returned home each day.
