The farm is a school that is an educational teaching center and includes a defined agricultural area. The school is attended by schoolchildren from the area, brought in from area schools on organized transportation, in order to study agricultural sciences and environmental studies.
The farms enable a holistic green environment in which students grow vegetables, herbs, flowers, house plants, fruit trees and animals. The students learn, work and experience a meaningful, creative and diverse experience that is used to develop a healthy lifestyle and provides a response to modern life that distances us from the ground and from healthy and fresh food sources.
The students are exposed to a variety of topics related to a healthy lifestyle: proper nutrition, sports activities, health promotion (prevention of disease), prevention of obesity, maintaining personal hygiene, strengthening one’s bodily self-image and maintaining a clean and aesthetic environment.
