What we do for
schools & universities
Urban Green Farms has developed a number of programmes for students across Australia in order to educate them about the benefits of sustainability through aquaponics and hydroponics. We provide a specialised courses for both hydroponics and aquaponics. Built with the teacher in mind, it fits right into science and sustainability studies for Primary and Secondary schools.
We understand that teachers and educators are already time poor and face many challenges. Urban Green Farms will help your school learn, grow and discover the world of sustainable farming by providing you with a range of products, ready to go education courses, training and on-going support.
OUR EDUCATION PARTNERS
We aim to develop a network of schools and education facilities that build a community of like-minded people to share knowledge and key learnings. Here are a handful of some of our partner schools:
OUR AQUAPONICS COURSE
The course is perfectly designed for grade 3 upwards, but can be adapted to be much more comprehensive for senior students. Students will learn about “mini- ecosystems” and in-depth review of the Nitrogen Cycle, and its importance to living organisms. This includes ecosystems, and how pH measurements can be used to test water for different variables. The lessons also include other pertinent information as well as related vocabulary and more.
OUR HYDROPONICS COURSE
Students will learn about the science behind plants and what they need to grow. Including topics such as nutrients, light, Photosynthesis, Water, Carbon Dioxide,
environmental requirements, and much more. Students will need to identify the key differences between conventional and Hydroponic farming, whilst being able to establish advantages and disadvantages of each method, and apply them to real-world situations.
