AgriKids Farm Safety Week Events Schedule 2022
Story time with Tales from Riverside Farm - Ages 3+
Tales from Riverside Farm Part 1 - The Tree Swing
The first in the ‘Tales from Riverside Farm’ series. It’s finally summer at Riverside Farm. While camping outside Tom & Sarah rescue a hedge sprite with magical powers, Mr. Brambles. He makes them a special promise to keep them safe. It’s not long before the children find themselves in a sticky situation & only Mr. Brambles can help.
Narrated by author and AgriKids Founder, Alma Jordan, this event also includes some tips around recognising safety signs.
Tales from Riverside Farm Part 2 - The Big Brown Bull
The second in the series and a big brown bull has come to live at Riverside Farm. He’s a very cranky brown bull. The children must never go into a field with a bull. But with no signs on the gate and a little girl who refuses to wear her new glasses, it’s not long before trouble strikes. Can Mr. Brambles get there before it’s too late!
Narrated by author and AgriKids Founder, Alma Jordan, this event also includes some tips around recognising different animal behaviours and staying safe when around animals.
Tales from Riverside Farm Part 3 - The Red Tractor
The third in the series and the one that tackles the most prominent issue of safety for children on farms – tractors! It’s autumn on Riverside Farm. Sarah and Tom are picking juicy blackberries to make blackberry tarts, and Daddy is busy with the red tractor in the back field. But when Tom climbs into the tractor, he quickly gets into a very sticky situation. With so many buttons and levers, he doesn’t know which one to push first! Once again Mr Brambles must come to the rescue. But is his magic strong enough to stop a runaway tractor?
Narrated by author and AgriKids Founder, Alma Jordan, this event also includes some tips around on staying safe around tractors and machinery.
