Everything we eat used to be alive! A family afternoon to discover chickens for eggs, bees for honey and all kinds of fruit and vegetables
Hen Corner are delighted to invite you to join them for a special afternoon exploring our urban small holding and discovering more about where our food comes from…
Whilst they will be basing your time together on the sessions that they offer to local Primary Schools, Team Leader Sara Ward has over 25 years of experience working with pre-school children and their families. During your time together, you can explore where our food comes from looking at plants (fruit, vegetables and trees), bees for honey and as pollinators, and chickens for eggs.
Activities for the afternoon:
Welcome with home made cookies, organic cordial for the children and tea/coffee for the grown ups.
Introduction to Hen Corner and where our food comes from, followed by each activity below:
- Meeting the chickens (everyone can have a stroke/cuddle if they like) and an opportunity to collect the eggs
- Watching the bee hives from a safe distance, studying live bees from behind the glass of an observation hive, exploring the life cycle of a honey bee, dressing up as a bee keeper and tasting some of our award winning honey.
- Exploring the Kitchen Garden and fruit trees to discover what food can be grown and harvested in London
- Planting herb seeds that can be taken home to germinate
Each child needs to be accompanied by a paying adult and we ask you to be responsible for the children that you bring whilst you are here at Hen Corner. Hen Corner is a family home and they will confirm full details of address, parking, dietary requirements, etc. when they have received your booking.
