TESTIMONIAL

" We have truly loved our time at Bush Farm school and I’m so blessed to have been able to send both boys over the three years, but especially our older one who has greatly benefitted from your programmes. He is so confident in the bush and teaches me new things all the time. I credit you for his massive love of birds and for introducing him to the bird calls that day while lying on the ground at Orton Bradley. His favourite memories from NZ are of Bush Farm. I wish you all the best as Bush Farm grows and invites more children into the goodness of nature!"
