School excursions

Adamama is first and foremost a living, interactive classroom - a growing, sustainable hub for all schools and youth groups to enjoy and benefit from. It is the perfect place to bring your class for an excursion. Our 2-hour programs include an informative, eye-opening tour and an integrated hands-on workshop you can choose from our offerings. We look forward to tailoring an exciting program that suits your school and project needs.

We run our excursions at the Randwick Sustainability Hub and the council is offering a 50% discount to all schools from the Randwick LGA. 

We love teaching our younger generation about all things food, sustainability and nature. We have created a selection of hands-on workshops and farm tours where children can connect to nature experientially and learn about sustainability in a fun environment. We offer a range of  Natural Arts and Crafts, Food, Pollination or Eco-Dyeing workshops together with tours that explore subjects such as Animals, Native Habitat, Composting and more.

Climate Change: we bring climate change issues to life by using real examples to teach about global warming, greenhouse gases, water scarcity and food security.

Workshops

Eco-dyeing: environmental learning is combined with creativity as students make their own naturally-dyed fabrics out of veggies and spices.

Pollinators: students learn about the remarkable lives of our humble pollinators and make seed bombs, so they can grow flowers and attract pollinators to their own homes.

Natural Arts and crafts: students explore ways to appreciate nature through artistic expression, such as botanical drawings, decorating wrapping paper using veggie offcuts or leaf rubbings. 

Gatherers: students have a true farm to table experience, using edible plants to make a delicious recipe for their class from plants foraged at the Sustainability Hub. 

Pickling 101: students learn about the significance of food preservation and fermentation and get to make their own jar of pickled vegetables to take home.

Growing in small spaces: students learn the basic principles of growing their own food, learning what to plant when and how to maintain healthy soil.

Propagating at home: students learn all the hacks to grow food from leftovers in the fridge, including herbs and sprouts.
