Abstract

Alongside recent renewed interest in urban agriculture, there has been an increased focus on school farming. The School Farms Network has a large membership base and interest from other green space organisations across the UK. Using contributions from grass roots practitioners and network co-ordinators, we present case studies to illustrate the breadth of the school farms concept, as well as the value which practitioners find in being part of such a network We examine the future role of school farming and how the practice can be sustained or expanded.
