Do you dream of having your own farm, growing your own food, and raising livestock? This course will teach you the foundations of sustainable small-scale agriculture.
Here you'll learn to grow vegetables, grains, and berries, as well as raising farm animals, slaughtering them, and preparing the meat. To prepare vegetables, milk, and meat to feed those around you, and to work with a tractor and chainsaw. You can learn all this and more.
Our school's organic farm is Debio certified, meaning it is accredited as organic under some of the strcitest standards in Europe. The farm provides the school with food throughout the year. On the farm you'll find pigs, hens, cows, and ducks. We harvest potatoes, cabbage, kolrabi, sundry herbs, wheat, barley, rye, and hay. The animals have space to live and play, and when it comes time to slaughter them it is done with the greatest respect and as much as possible of the animal is used.
On Organic Farming you'll be there for the entire journey from seed to harvest and preparation, from sowing to weeding, to putting it in the store for sale, or to helping the kitchen staff get it ready to be served to the rest of the students. Maintaining a compost pile is a natural part of the process, as well as spreading manure on the fields.
We grow organic because it is the future of agriculture. Join us in the Green Movement.
