Farm Kids School Holiday Veggies YUM!! Workshop
@ The Farm Byron Bay

We start our Farm Kids School Holiday Veggies YUM!! Workshop with an educational, hands on and fun tour of The Farm where we specifically search for and focus our discussion on Veggies. What is a veggie and what is fruit? Is corn a veggie or a grass? We head out to the market garden to examine the different vegetables growing and the organic farming practices used. We discuss companion planting and nutritional soil.  We harvest and taste vegetables from the garden (if available).
