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 programs are 90 minutes and include an informative, eye-opening tour and an integrated hands-on workshop you can choose from our offerings below. 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 discount of $5 per student 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. 

Our programs foster student awareness and engagement around sustainability and the environment. We have designed a mixture of thought-provoking farm tours and hands-on workshops for you to choose from. Programs delve into subjects such as climate change, pollination and farm to table living. Our workshops are very hands-on and range from Pickling 101, Eco-Dyeing to Propagating at Home and more.

Propagating at home: Learn how to turn what is in the fridge into a garden. Students will use cuttings from leftover fruit, veggies and herbs and learn how to sprout new plants to care for (and eventually eat!) Students will make lemonade to drink and then use seeds to sprout their own lemon trees.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Bring climate change issues to life by using real examples to teach about global warming, greenhouse gases, water scarcity and food security. Students will learn how to reduce their own waste and how to repurpose “rubbish” to create new and functional products.
