An educational farm is a farm where "active" educational activities are promoted, in which a program linked to the experimentation of the 5 senses and the knowledge of the agricultural reality is implemented. In accordance with this line of thought, the activities proposed by our structure focus on the logic of the game and on the idea of education as a natural process of evolution of the child through experience in the environment. The activities proposed to the schools involve children and young people of any age to experiment, through different types of educational workshops, from those of manipulation to recreational and recreational, a new way to know nature and learn its mysterious secrets. The typical day in Cascina starts in the morning and can include a meal on the farm with a simplified menu, a picnic lunch or a picnic under the portico or, in spring, on the green fields of our lands. After the workshops the day ends in the early afternoon.
