Family Farm Tour

Bring the kids along to discover the joy and abundance of the Green Connect farm and experience first-hand where their food comes from.

These 60-minute tours are fun and interactive for the whole family! We’ll get hands-on as we explore our 11-acre permaculture farm, including market gardens where we grow the majority of our produce and food forest which is slowly producing fruit. We’ll also search for our free-range sheep, goats, pigs, and chickens to offer a tasty snack.

Eight years ago, our vision was to turn a steep block of unused land in Warrawong, just south of Wollongong, into a thriving farm. Today the farm produces fruit, vegetables, herbs, eggs, honey, and free-range meat using organic principles. As well as growing fair food, the farm creates jobs for young people and former refugees. Last year, Green Connect grew and distributed 35,250kg of chemical free food and employed 144 former refugees and young people.

We’d love you to come and see what we’ve done with the place!

Please note that Family Farm tours are designed for children and their parents/carers. Those who are interested in learning about permaculture farming in more detail are invited to book into an Adult farm tour or explore our range of Workshops. Private farm tours are also available for groups of family and friends.

Description

Before you book, please consider the following:

  • The site is a working farm and visitors must participate in a safety briefing before entering. We ask all tour participants to arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of their tour to ensure we start on time.
  • The terrain at the farm is particularly steep and slippery in parts. Though we do take it slowly, the tour involves a moderately strenuous walk and is not accessible for prams, wheelchairs, or people with moderate mobility issues. See the video below to ensure you will be able to walk the site.
  • Plants love rain and so do we! We don’t cancel tours in wet weather unless there is a dangerous storm. Rain (and mud!) is all part of the fun.
  • Allergen advice: Our farm is home to domestic animals as well as bees, wasps, and macadamia trees. Please pack an EpiPen if allergic and keep it with you at all times.
  • To ensure compliance with current NSW Government restrictions, we have put in place a range of measures to keep tour participants safe. If you have visited a COVID-19 hotspot within 14 days of your tour or if you come down with cold or flu-like symptoms, we will ask you to contact us and stay home.
