Pocket City Farms will be hosting regular workshops for city kids to introduce them to where the food we eat comes from. The workshops will be held at the fabulous Camperdown Commons, a working urban farm/market garden in the heart of the Inner West of Sydney.
On Sunday mornings, kids (aged from 5 - 12 years) will learn about growing food in different seasons and then get their fingers all grubby when they are encouraged to harvest produce direct from the garden. They'll meet the resident chooks too. Then it's time to hit the kitchen where the chefs from the on site eatery Acre will show the young chefs how to read a recipe, and make things like simple pesto or a tasty vegie salad.
There will also be after school sessions on Wednesday afternoons, where kids are able to make things such as seed balls and learn how to connect with the natural world which is sometimes hard to do when you are born and bred in the city.
Whilst your offspring are being entertained you can grab a coffee or bite to eat from either Acre or the kiosk at the entrance to Camperdown Commons, and enjoy the surrounds of this urban oasis in the middle of Camperdown.
Vivid Sydney at Chatswood is one of the precincts for Vivid Sydney and offers up an unforgettable experience for kids with Lightscape, an eclectic celebration of food, fashion, light and the planet cosmos.
