About the event
🌿 Use the Magic of Organic Farming to Bond with your Family! 🌾
In a world where convenience often trumps connection, it's essential to instill in our children a fundamental understanding of where their food comes from and the valuable skills that accompany growing their own nourishment. This knowledge not only promotes healthier eating habits but also cultivates an appreciation for nature and sustainability from an early age.
🌟 Join Our Introductory Organic Farming Course for Families! 🌟
Get ready for a fun, educational adventure that brings your family closer to nature and healthier living. Our Family Farming Experience is designed to provide you with a broad overview of the field, covering a wide range of topics to nurture your family's green thumb.
It will not be a lecture, but rather 'learn by doing', which we hope they will remember forever. 30% theory: 70% practice
🌱 Course Content Includes:
- Hydroponics: Unlock the secret of soilless farming! Learn how to cultivate crops using water-based nutrient solutions and discover the advantages of this innovative method.
- Composting: Turn your kitchen scraps into "black gold" for your garden. Explore the art of composting and understand the benefits of enriching your soil naturally.
- Aquaculture: Dive into the fascinating world of aquatic farming. Discover how to maintain fish tanks, grow your own fish, and incorporate aquaculture into your farm ecosystem.
