Fun Farm Fam

A natural farmland in the city and a nature education programme for children aged 2-8 years.

The designer opens a natural farmland in the city and sets up a nature education programme for children aged 2-8 years. The content includes nature science, animal conservation, food education, creative woodworking, and so on. Get children outdoors and get their hands dirty. In the hands-on activities, they will find a way to learn that suits them. Unlike traditional education, children are able to learn to express, create and experience in nature.

The Farm also provide a special land which is created on the farm and leased to families at an appropriate price. Just like the civic farms in Germany, where adults can also be children again and experience the joy of farming. When the family is away, there are also dedicated farmers who carry out the daily maintenance and care to ensure that the crops grow properly. Families usually rent for 3 months so that after planting the seeds in the spring, they can harvest themselves in the autumn and experience the whole process from planting to growing. This is a completely different experience to life in the city. It can be a joyful experience for citizens to go back to the basics.
