Young Vines is an outdoor education group held in a family vineyard and farm at the foothills of mount Pendeli in Greece.

Daily MONDAY - WEDNESDAY - FRIDAY  10:00 - 13:00

Three mornings a week, September-June, we run a group for preschoolers (age 2-4 years).

The children learn through play in a natural outdoor environment. Caring for the animals, cultivating the vegetable garden and becoming involved in seasonal tasks are woven into a daily routine rich with imaginative-play, art, puppet theatre and lots of experimentation. 

The children become immersed in the natural world around them, experiencing seasonal cycles and natural boundaries. They draw experience from these, expanding their own self-awareness and building their self-esteem as they learn to overcome challenges. (contact us for information & registration)

Every First Sunday of the month the vineyard opens its doors with activities for the whole family.

Activities for children aged 1-10, based on seasonal nature play. (check out our calendar of events)

Educational Programs for Schools

Our team of experienced conservationists, agriculturalists and educators are available to discuss programs best suited to your class. We are able to provide a wide range of activities for children from preschool and throughout the primary years.

Children in secondary school can be lead on an educational tours by our oenologist and our agriculturalist to learn first-hand about oenology, viticulture, permaculture & gardening, bee-keeping, olive oil production, conservation and environmental awareness.
