Egg-cellent farming fun to be had at Eden this Easter
The Eden Project is inviting its visitors to have fantastic fun this Easter with a whole array of farming-themed activities.
The new programme, Down at the Farm, will run April 6-25 and will allow families to engage in a multitude of games and activities which will highlight the importance of soil, crops and agriculture.
Working as a team, budding farmers will be able to scramble around the stage area in an attempt to find farmyard animals and get them safely back to their homes, making the animal noises as they go.
Also in the stage, there will be a chance to attempt throwing corn into a giant windmill, gather vegetables to take to the local markets and have a traditional game of “pin the tail”.
In the orchard area, a soil pit will allow visitors to explore the soil to find the tiny creatures that live in its layers and help make the crops grow.
Entertainment will also be available in the arena area, where games of “welly wanging” can be found whilst the Eden storytellers will be in action within the Mediterranean Biome.
Across the site, there will be two fun trails for visitors to follow as well as The Great Eden Egg Hunt which sees dozens of precious patterned eggs hidden throughout Eden. A special prize can be claimed by anyone who can find one of these eggs.
Children will be provided with a card upon entry to Eden, on which they can collect stamps during their day. They can then exchange these for a treat.
Polly Randle, Eden Live’s senior programme lead, said: “This Easter we are really pleased to offer lots of ‘eggciting’ activities for families to come to Eden and enjoy.
“We hope that this year’s programme will be one of our most fun ones to date and will encourage visitors to spend some time outdoors and connect with each other and the land around us.”
Down at the Farm takes place April 6-25 and all activities are included in standard Eden admission. For more information or to book tickets, see www.edenproject.com.
