“We hope that the forest school will help develop the Farm as a hub for local families, as well as drawing families from around Halifax.We’re excited to have the chance to be growing food at the farm and giving the kids the chance to cook what they are growing, maybe learn about plant medicine or natural dyeing — all washed down with a healthy dose of outdoor play and away from their electronic devices!”
