This case study looks at Krakow Waldorf School's farm education links.
For several years, the Stanisław Karłowski Foundation has been organising the "Green Schools" programme for primary school pupils, on their biodynamic Juchowo Farm. One of the partners of this project is Janusz Korczak Waldorf School in Krakow. The students come to the farm for a whole week, carry out self-guided learning in different areas and explore how a farm functions and what it means to produce food with respect for the land, animals and plants. The aim of the project is to give young people the opportunity to discover where their food comes from and to see how much human input is behind the food they eat. This learning is then taken back to their school and has been used, amongst other things, to develop the school gardens.
