WELLCOME IN THE FARM

Our activities start in March and end in November.

The activity of the educational farm goes hand in hand with traditional farming and production. The farm thus becomes an open-air laboratory that combines theory with practice: the logic guiding the days on the farm is based on direct experience: I DO AND I LEARN.
The aim is not only to pass on information about rural life, food education and animal husbandry, but to make use of a real environment where children can DO THE FARM.
All educational paths are linked to manual skills and the use of the five bodily senses.

WHAT WE PROPOSE:

  • GUIDED FARM VISITS FOR SCHOOLS AND GROUPS (MIN 15 PARTICIPANTS) (APRIL-MAY and SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER)
  • GREEN WEEKS (SUMMER CAMPS) FROM THE BEGINNING OF JUNE TO THE BEGINNING OF SEPTEMBER
  • DIDACTIC GRAPE HARVEST (SEPTEMBER)
  • ENTERTAINMENT AND THEME BIRTHDAY PARTIES ON WEEKENDS (with activities to be agreed)

 

The educational farm is a facility that offers visitors (young and old) the opportunity to learn more about their local area and to discover the beauty and workings of nature, experiencing through playful experiences a healthy and respectful relationship with it. The activities are aimed at using a methodology that favours sensorial, manual emotional and playful experiences, through interactive group and/or individual moments in close contact with nature, plants and animals present on the farm.

WHO IS THE INITIATIVE AIMED AT? The initiative is aimed at school groups (primary, middle and high school), organised groups of children (scouts, after-school clubs, recreational associations, etc.), family groups or groups of various kinds.

GENERAL PURPOSES

  • Becoming more aware of the natural rhythms of life
  • Train critical thinking to promote creativity
    Breathe in the benefit of being in contact with Nature
  • To live sensory, emotional, manual, playful experiences through group and individual recreational moments in close contact with nature, plants and animals
  • To stimulate conscious behaviour in pupils: to respect plants, animals and their habitat.
  • To provide all those motivations aimed at stimulating environmental and animal awareness, so as to establish a relationship between the practical experiences the children have and the knowledge learnt in the classroom.
  • To conduct experiences of cooperation, collaboration and listening to others in order to improve interaction skills with the group
  • Experiencing a slower pace that increases psychophysical well-being
  • Strengthen physical, mental and mood for harmonious growth
  • Increasing attention and concentration time for more effective schooling
  • Having fun through knowledge and connection with Nature

Obviously, depending on the age group, we will work on specific topics.
