For middle-upper primary students we have a specially-designed program that takes place in the Tasmanian Community Food Garden (the Patch). Children will get to explore the seasonal produce, learn the secrets of how we make things grow so well, and get involved by planting seeds.

For senior students, our guided tours can be tailored to meet the focus of your area of study. Get in touch to find out what we can offer.
