Nurturing a Love of Nature

The sights and smells and tastes of nature strengthen our connections and memories. Think of the mulberry tree you climbed, the creek you explored, and the fresh snow peas you tasted… Developing a love of nature starts by being immersed in it.

At Green Connect, we love facilitating these kinds of opportunities for our community; after all, we know there is something very special about our farm. In the coming year, we plan to offer more activities that create the time and space for kids (and big kids) to reset, explore and play in ways that will create memories that bring smiles to faces for years to come. Chances to get muddy, care for animals, and dig hands deep into rich soil. Even just the opportunity to sit beneath the trees and listen to the wind.

In January we are excited to announce that we will be offering School Holiday programs that incorporate mini-farm tours with nature-play, loose-parts, and recycled crafts. We are also working on a Nature Playgroup, and we will be trialling a new Farm Blitz Community Day every second month. There will be lots of chances to come together, lend a helping hand on the farm, play, and connect!

Check out our activities webpage for more info about these experiences as they become available:

What other activities would you love to see at the farm? We love hearing from our community to help create the experiences people are searching for. It is not just for kids; adults need time in nature too!

Feature Veg: Bok Choy (13 December), Cabbage (20 December)

Bok Choy

Bok choy delivers one of the highest levels of nutrients per calorie compared to similar produce. You can keep bok choy in the fridge for up to a week but it’s best to eat fresh to ensure you’re getting all those nutrients. There’s no end to what you can do in the kitchen with this veg and your options include, sautéing, frying, steaming, shredding, pickling, grilling, or eating it as is!

With low calories and high levels of vitamins C and K, dietary fibre and folate, Cabbage boasts a wide variety of health benefits and is a healthy addition to any meal.  It pairs particularly well with strong ingredients because of its mild flavour and can be eaten raw in coleslaw or used as a lettuce substitute and can also be braised, roasted, grilled or used in stir-frys.
