This farm is only exclusive for kids only! Yes, it's our unique farming plot! The students will spend the year harvesting a variety of fruits and vegetables with the help of local farmers! The students will work in groups to design, create and look after their farming plot throughout the year! 



ASK any child where their food comes from, and the chances are they’ll say the supermarket. Moreover, most adults don’t know a lot more about how food ends up on their plate either. An increasing amount of kids today do not know where food comes. Processed foods are partly at fault here. Processed foods have invaded almost every home and stomach in developed countries around the world. At school, we see that by having students start their garden, it will impact them on how they view nutrition.  They can watch the plants grow and ripen before eating them. This creates excitement, anticipation and a sense of accomplishment for the kids. They will enjoy cooking and eating what they’ve planted and looked after themselves. Research,h studies have confirmed that hands-on gardening does improve the dietary habits of children!
