Education Program

The Farm My School Education Program

creates hands-on learning experiences to stimulate critical thinking about food growing, regenerative farming, sustainability, health and wellbeing. We explore constructive and sustainable ways farming and food issues can be addressed on a local scale. Through first-hand experience, we aim to build students' understanding, respect and connection with farms and the farmers who grow the food we eat.  
Excursions are held at the Farm My School Pilot Project site, located at Bellarine Secondary College in Drysdale, where we have created a 1.5-acre market garden and food hub.  Schools can choose between half day or full day excursions.

Healthy soil = healthy plants = healthy food = healthy people = healthy community
