Introducing The Possum Patch

Posted on

“With purpose-built spaces for children’s parties and events, a playground and café, Pialligo Estate’s The Possum Patch will reconnect kids with where their food comes from.”

Eagle-eyed Canberrans who spotted Pialligo Estate signage on neighbouring Beltana Road can end their speculation. Pialligo Estate has unveiled the newest addition to its diverse offerings, a children’s event centre – The Possum Patch.

With purpose-built spaces for children’s parties, classes and a playground, The Possum Patch will take up residence in one of the cottages at 12 Beltana Road. But that doesn’t mean it’ll feel a world away from the Estate itself. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Open now, The Possum Patch will give kids the opportunity to explore Pialligo Estate on a farm tour, where they’ll hop into golf buggies to venture down the back road to the Estate’s orchards and vege gardens.

Pialligo’s Children’s Event Coordinator Claire Northfield says that it’ll be a chance for kids to reconnect with where their food comes from.

“It’s about teaching children and their families about that [Pialligo Estate] paddock-to-plate philosophy,” she explains. “The aim is for children to come and pick their own food, learn how it grows and use it in their cooking as well.”

In the Estate’s market gardens, kids will get to pick vegetables and collect fruit from the orchards before returning to The Possum Patch to cook up the fresh produce and learn and recipe or two.

These experiences can be accessed in the form of a party or The Possum Patch’s school holiday program. There’s even the opportunity for local schools and teachers to book The Possum Patch as an educational excursion.

In addition to the farm tour and cooking with produce from the Estate, birthday party packages can include party games, face painting, balloons, a cake and outdoor play on a private playground with eight ‘themes’ to choose from, including Pirate Adventure, Pizza Party, Winter Wonderland, Mystery Box à la MasterChef and a High Tea Garden Party.
