About the School Farming Community (SFC)

UPDATE: Now includes a Google Doc version of the member’s manuals for ease of sharing with your staff!

The idea behind this School Farming Community is that all schools and early childhood centres will be provided with the means, support and discounts to establish crop-growing patches cheaply and even farms in spare areas of their land to raise funds, be a leader in sustainability and become a pillar in their community by assisting those in need. Not only that but your students will also gain the experience that they can pass on to home life and receive training for future agricultural careers.
