Field Trips

Learners of all ages will enjoy visiting the Farm and Food Discovery Centre on a field trip. Our interactive displays and windows into a working pig barn help students to develop an understanding of agricultural practices and an appreciation for the origins of their food.

Groups receive a free guided tour with the price of admission, providing a general overview of the centre and a background in Manitoba agriculture. Tours will be tailored to the age of the audience and the specific areas of interest/study. A guided tour last 45-60 minutes and is following by a workshop of your choice and free time to explore the Discovery Centre. Workshops are focused on student learning through hands-on activities and inquiry. Based on the Manitoba curriculum, our workshops challenge and delight students of all ages. 

A lunch room is available for use free of charge when full-day workshops are booked in advance. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, FFDC can only accomodate a maximum of 30 students per field trip.

Teachers/supervisors and parent volunteers are admitted free of charge if there is no more than 1 adult for every 6 children.
