During the 1st Quarter, we took our work to new communities across six States in Nigeria. In total, we recruited and trained 300 rural women and farmers on organic farming
What would happen if every child in Africa had access to a school farm in which they could grow, harvest and enjoy healthy vegetables & fruits from the source?
Develop a personal connection to the natural world around them? Have the opportunity to contribute to healthy food production in their community? How would these experiences, if woven into the fabric of childhood, impact how young people relate to school and learning, to healthy food, and to their community? Is it possible that this influences their way of life, family nutrition, their career and sustenance in later years?
A School Farm can serve as an incredible classroom and an outstanding teacher for a child. In a school farm we are able to cultivate children’s love of learning, their appreciation of healthy food, and their connection to nature and community.
