After 2 years of collaborative work to bring children's nature programming to the Just Food Farm, we are thrilled that in the fall of 2013 Apple Blossom Mornings began at Just Food's beautiful organic urban farm in Blackburn Hamlet.  

This weekly program utilizes Vermont's Shelburne Farm Nature curriculum and Waldorf education to offer children an opportunity to discover the wonders of nature on 120 acres of mixed woodland and organically farmed land just minutes from downtown Ottawa. 

Parents and children aged 3-6 can spend 8 weeks exploring the farm trails, visiting the frog pond, learning about healthy food and sustainable farming, creating sweet seasonal crafts and listening to nature inspired stories told through puppetry and music.
