WORKSHOPS FOR ALL YOUNG & OLD
Can’t tell a cotomili from a parsley? Have dreams of a herb garden but you can’t even keep a cactus alive? Well we couldn’t either… not until we started Farmcity at least. The running joke among us is that we made all of the worst mistakes so others don’t have to. We share all of our learnings, tips and tricks through this series of interactive workshops. Great for all ages, no farming experience needed!
LEARNING JOURNEY SCHOOLS
The #Cultivate program is a 1.5hour program specially developed for primary and secondary level students. In this workshop, we introduce participants to Farmcity's farming model and engage their inner entrepreneur with a fair trade simulation. The goal is to have students leave with a a greater awareness of their role as changemakers in the greater food system. School visits can be conducted in groups of 30 at a time, and a maximum of two groups per day.
TEAM DISCOVERY CORPORATES
Fancy a change of scenery? Our experiential programs take teams and managers on a learning journey out of the office and ‘back to the land’. Exposure to nature has been linked to better moods, higher job satisfaction, and more commitment to their employer. Speak with us today to tailor an activity that best suit your employee needs.

PAY-WHAT-YOU-WISH YOUNG AND OLD
Every Saturday morning, we take our visitors on a tour of Farmcity, sharing what we do, how we grow, and what we are all about. We never want income to be a barrier to learning more, so we conduct these tours on a “Pay-What-You-Wish basis. This means exactly that - pay what you wish at the end of the tour, if you feel you’ve learnt something during your visit.
