Class 3 students, their parents and siblings, together with teacher, Rodney Dean, spent the weekend at the Goulburn Yurt farm as part of their Farming Main Lesson.

The yurt farm is situated on a 1174 acre property with beautiful rolling hills and bush. It all started 20 years ago when Mike Shepherd started summer camps for kids from the city to teach them practical living skills. The aim is to give children self confidence and a sense of achievement whilst having fun.

The farmhouse dates back to 1870 and accommodates the international travellers that help out on this farm. The farmyard is full of chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, goats, cows, horses, sheep, ferrets and alpacas. There is also a big organic fruit and vegie garden. In the evening, Mike hosts a big home cooked meal and singsong around the open fireplace.
