School programs

PFR Community Farms School Membership

 Your children’s school (or your school if you are a teacher) can become a PFR Community Farm School. For a small cost per term (plus materials that can’t be recycled or sourced) your school will be able to:
  • have one of our staff attend with volunteers with Working With Children checks for 8 hours per week (with time set aside for assistance with curriculum activities)
  • set the school up with planting plans and organic heirloom seedlings
  • create a school garden committee, hold meetings and build a succession plan for the garden
  • East Hills District Schools Harvest Festival affiliation and assistance
  • therapeutic horticulture workshop and support
  • consultation and planning with local elders on Indigenous edible plants.

Free Ranger Jacqui and our volunteers at schools have valid working with children checks. Jacqui also has a background in sustainability, early childhood, aged care and disability care specialising in Therapeutic Horticulture. She has a degree in Social Science and a few of her own kids too!

The schools we are currently working with are:

  • Panania Public School
  • East Hills Public School
  • Revesby South Public School
  • East Hills Girls High School
