Where does my food come from?

We are delighted to invite you to join us for a special afternoon exploring our urban small holding and discovering more about where our food comes from...

Whilst we will be basing our time together on the sessions that we offer to local Primary Schools, Team Leader Sara Ward has 25 years of experience working with pre-school children and their families.

During our time together, we can explore where our food comes from looking at plants (fruit, vegetables and trees), bees for honey and as pollinators, and chickens for eggs.
Activities for the afternoon:

Welcome with home made cookies, organic cordial for the children and tea/coffee for the grown ups.

Introduction to Hen Corner and where our food comes from, followed by each activity below:

  • Meeting the chickens (everyone can have a stroke/cuddle if they like) and an opportunity to collect the eggs

  • Watching the bee hives from a safe distance, studying live bees from behind the glass of an observation hive, exploring the life cycle of a honey bee, dressing up as a bee keeper and tasting some of our award winning honey.

  • Exploring the Kitchen Garden and fruit trees to discover what food can be grown and harvested in London, planting herb seeds that can be taken home to germinate

We will finish our time together with tea and cakes....

'Sara, thank you (and your chickens) for making the children feel so welcome in your garden. It was such an interesting and funfilled day. The children also say a big thank you for the delicious juice and cookies. We will definitely be back again. :)'

Each child needs to be accompanied by an adult and we ask you to be responsible for the children that you bring whilst you are here at Hen Corner.

Hen Corner is our family home and we will confirm full details of address, parking, dietary requirements, etc. when we have received your booking.

'Very inspiring learning experience. Sara's welcoming was so warm and professional, the most enjoyable afternoon meeting her and her family as well as the rest of the group.'
