School Farms Network Conference 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.
Sessions will be both practical, topical, and an opportunity for you to learn and contribute at the same time. The draft programme so far includes sessions on:
- Access to higher education;
- Starting a school farm;
- Funding and income generation;
- Keeping poultry;
- Rare breeds;
- Technology, education and farming;
- Year of Green Action.
