EDUCATION

EDUCATION ON THE FARM

Greendale Acres is committed to teaching students about agriculture and the role it plays in our community. Our Spring on the Farm theme is the life cycle of plants and animals. We offer field trips for preschools and both private and public schools. Our aim is to provide students with a fun, hands-on learning experience where students can interact with agriculture. Our field trip is semi guided with lots of time to run and play.

There are two field options available. Our Spring on the Farm field trip will run from April 19th until the end of May. It is designed for preschool to Grade 4. Our Year End field trip will run for the entire month of June. This field trip option is a year end celebration combining the fun elements of our farm with the opportunity to build community within your class.

Covid19 – We have taken the time to assess the current school structure and follow guidelines as per the Provincial Health Order.

YEAR END FIELD TRIP

COME CELEBRATE WITH US!

Our Year End field trip has lots of fun farm activities such as our jumping pillow, hay bale maze, ropes course and large organized field games. For field games, we break up students into multiple teams (aka “farms”) where they will compete in staff lead games to decide the winning farm. There will also be an option to have campfires and to have our concession open.

This field trip is geared towards Grade 5+
It’s a fun relaxed, community building environment. We will create it to suit your school’s needs and put together a year end event to remember!
