GARDEN WORLD’S EDUCATIONAL OUTINGS

At Garden World we offer children a variety of educational outings.

Program 1 – General Farming

Program 2 – Growing Plants

Both of the above programs are very popular, the ‘Hands-on’ experience on the farm being a wonderful learning curve for the children.

We present the facets of agriculture to the children who visit us, according to the age & development of the child.  The children have great fun while gaining education. All the programs are supervised & provide a learning experience, where the children gain knowledge of plant & animal lore.

Give your children the magic of touching, loving & feeding tame farm animals. A truly fascinating experience for toddlers, pre-primary & primary school children. School, Scout, Sunday School & all other groups are most welcome.

Program 2 on growing plants is most appropriate. (Garden World is a garden centre with its own plant growing facilities). This program is also a ‘hands-on’ experience teaching the children the importance of growing plants. On request, Entrepreneurship can be included in this program where we discuss & illustrate the various aspects of growing plants for business purposes.
