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 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
