We just heard about this conference all about helping schools run their own farms and it caught our interest. It’s run by the School Farms Network on 5th-6th October 2012 in Banbury, Oxfordshire. The organisers say it is aimed at “schools considering starting to rear any kind of livestock, and for anyone interested in raising standards through the beneficial effects of farming in education.”
There are 82 school farms in the UK. We’re impressed!
