Excursions


Julie’s lifetime profession as an educator ensures school groups optimum learning experiences with a range of specific learning goals; Agricultural, Environmental, Indigenous and Creativity. We are lucky to have our own resources as well as local experts to enrich the students learning in all these areas. Please contact us to discuss a program to meet your curriculum needs as the summaries below can be included in an educational excursion.

 

INDIGENOUS

We acknowledge the

Dja Dja Wurrung and Jaara people as the traditional custodians of the land we farm. We have genuinely sought ways to respect and uphold the amazing history of this ancient race of people by identifying significant Aboriginal sites and ensuring that sites and all artifacts discovered have been registered with Aboriginal Heritage. We work with localDja Dja Wurrung and Jaara people when sharing the Indigenous local story.

 

AGRICULTURAL

The Howard farm is a fifth generation agricultural enterprise which prides itself on high quality lamb production, cereal, legume and oil seed crops and more recently olive production. Seasonal farm activity can be part of the visitors experience.
