ClearWater Farm is an educational farm located in Georgina. They give kids the opportunity to get their hands dirty gardening, their boots muddy exploring the natural world, and their young minds excited by fresh food, fresh water, fresh air, and fresh ideas. Their farm is abuzz with activities: ClearWater hosts school trips, camps and kids programs; they sell fabulously fresh food; and the community is making their barn into a hub for the arts, and a place where everyone can share what they learn.
More than a Website
ClearWater recently launched ClearWaterKids.org – Nature-based learning for kids. ClearWater Kids is an interactive website for hands-on learning and fun where kids can discover ways to take positive action for a more sustainable future. It’s incredibly well put together, easy to navigate and SO MUCH FUN! Visitors can expect eco-tips, watch videos fresh from the real farm, tackle challenges, try hands-on activities, play games, and – best of all – follow prompts that lead them outside to uncover the wonders of nature for themselves. It’s also the home of Potato the Chicken!
More than Fun and Games
Being connected to nature is essential for kids’ growth and well-being, especially in this digital age where the allure of screens and devices is so strong. ClearWater’s approach is to use digital tools to engage kids and motivate them to head outdoors and apply what they have experienced virtually to real-world surroundings. Now get outside kids!
