School Farms Network Conference 2019

Designed to provide a focal point for reviving interest in school-based farming and gardening, and the critical role farms in schools have in supporting the development of a holistic education approach, the conference will highlight the value of land-based education through keynote presentations, practitioner-focused sharing and practical workshops.

Where: Royal Agricultural University, Cirencester

When: Friday 28th June - Saturday 29th June 2019

For the third consecutive year the School Farms Network Conference and Awards will be held at the Royal Agricultural University, Cirencester.

Whether you are a school manager, senior leader, governor or practitioner (teachers and parents) interested in providing hands-on outdoor learning environments to enhance teaching and learning, raise attainment, improve attendance and attention, and/or support pupils to access and succeed in a land-based future (scientist, vet, combine harvest driver, and hundreds of other low and high skill jobs), then this conference is for you

Sessions will be both practical, topical, and an opportunity for you to learn and contribute at the same time.
