Farm Kids Mini Farmers – Paper
March 18, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$130
Farm Kids Mini Farmers – Paper Workshop
@ The Farm Byron Bay
We will discuss how long it takes for a tree to grow and how much land is using for timber plantations. We will look into the huge amount of resources, and long processes it takes to make paper (both new and recycled). Are there many farms in Australia, or does our paper come from overseas? What types of trees are processed into paper? We will talk about how much paper is recycled in Australia and how it is done and what can we do to make things better. We will be making our own recycled paper and paperbark craft.
The kids become mini farmers and after a detailed tour get set to work doing farm chores. We collect eggs, restock our pet chickens bedding, ensure they have fresh water and clean out the coup. We work on our dedicated Farm Kids garden plot and tend to our onsite worm Subpod. If the opportunity arises, we assist the farmers with their chores. They forage, cook, make natural products, create and see where their food comes from as well as experience countless opportunities to learn about teamwork, community, and ethical farming practices.
