Trees on Farms

Trees on Farms is a program for Primary and Secondary students, exploring the importance of trees on farms and their role in whole farm management. The program makes links to the Agriculture, Science, Geography and Design and Technology curriculum and fosters citizenship, critical-thinking, and problem solving in students.

Spend the day on a farm exploring trees and their place within the whole farm system. Understand the importance of trees, how they function, grow and change and their role on a farm. Field days will be tailored to your learning objectives and needs, with opportunity to integrate different experiences across the farm.
