    Excursion Sites

    Kids to Farms can connect you to suitable sites for excursions, with hands-on learning. With sites across the state, we can help you find the right destination to visit or help you to visit one that your school community has existing connections with.

    Professional Development

    You don’t need to be an expert to explore agriculture with your students, however if you’d like to increase your knowledge, we’d love to support you in this.

    Excursion Transport Funding

    Kids to Farms can support schools with Transport Subsidies for Agricultural Excursions. Allow your students a first-hand experience of how the food they eat and the fibres they use are produced.
