Field Trip to the Pasha Farm for Years 1 & 2

On February 20th and 21st, our pupils visited the Pasha Farm. It was a wonderful educational and calming experience for them as they learned numerous gardening processes and techniques. They were enthralled by the variety of vegetables available such as, cabbages, turnips, spinach, coriander, broccoli, tomatoes and lettuce. They were intrigued by some of the plants as well, especially the cactus that was shaped like Micky Mouse. They even witnessed a 200-year-old tamarind tree!

Our children were shown the process of storing rain water, cotton making, plantation, harvesting seeds and fertilization. They were stunned at the sight of the deep well that had been created in the 1960s!

They also got to plant spinach seeds in their own little plant pots which they were able to take home. The guide at the farm taught them how to look after their new plants. The guide also explained to our children in great detail how each of the vegetables in the farm could be utilized in the kitchen. They also saw the self-made organic fertilizers and the home-made stored goods that Pasha Farms sell.

In addition to all the plants and planting experiences, they thoroughly enjoyed all the farm animals such as, chickens, rabbits, cows, goats and birds.

The Pasha Farms provided a peaceful and welcoming environment for our children and teachers, a much-needed, refreshing break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Needless to say, it was an extremely valuable experience, as young children have an innate love and connection to nature and animals in particular.
