Building Relationships Between Farms & Schools

NIAB Seminar Tent

GROW has spent the last 3 years building a 6 acre agroecological farm on land owned by a state secondary school.
We are both a working farm and educational hub and we supply our school canteen.
We believe that by farms and schools working together, we can begin to address some of the huge challenges we face as a planet, from the lack of connection to the natural world, the climate crisis and the lack of diversity in the farming world.
We want to share our journey to begin to think about what this model might look like in the future.
