At Polly Shorts Academy we believe that it is important to teach each child the necessity of agriculture in our society. The world is adapting at a radicle pace and the children of today are growing up into a world where updates are daily, technology is seemingly limitless and there are millions of directions one could take.
We have the privilege of being on a farm where the children can learn more about farm animals and what they eat. They also learn that gardening is fun and we touch on the following aspects:
* Garden habitats
* All about soil
* The changing seasons
* Growing vegetables
* Growing herbs
* Water gardens
* Your garden- a wildlife sanctuary
* Managing problem animals
Our aim in the next 5 years is to not only equip learners with the knowledge and skills to be self-sustaining, but to also encourage them to become forthcoming entrepreneurs by having a farm stall on the premises. Polly Shorts- a future in organics.
