Intensive course on urban farming for children
Hey kids are you ready for a fun and educational month-long adventure exploring the journey of real food from the ground to our table?
If you are 8 to 11 years old, we are waiting for you at Tulla, at the Urban Farm for Children.
The educational program that we have prepared aims to familiarise children with the life cycle of plants, care for some of the main fruits and vegetables for consumption. During the meetings at our urban farm, professional advice on healthy eating and the importance it has on the quality of life for a developing child will be provided.
This is a pilot educational programme, part of the Tulla – Non-formal Educational Program, focused on farming for urban areas with alternative means.
We extend invitation to all those parents interested in educating their children on the importance of healthy living and eating.
