Urban Farming

As a school we have a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, and we promote this learning in a number of ways.

One of these is through healthy eating and learning about organic and sustainable food production technologies, including solar-powered vertical farms, aquaponics, and other urban farming techniques.

We use our community, and their unique offerings, and our access to a school bio-dome to strengthen this programme.

Promoting the concept of “farm to table,” selecting local ingredients, cooking at home as a family, avoiding processed foods, and adopting exercise for life, the Fairgreen Health Wellness and Learning Programme enables students to formulate a blueprint for well-being that will continue to serve them for the rest of their lives.

Our Health, Wellness & Learning programme was modeled upon the successful experience of Educator and Urban Farming Pioneer Stephen Ritz, who continues to guide and influence our dynamic curriculum.
