Maintaining Urban Agriculture/Farm at Spotswood College, New Plymouth

Taranaki

Spotswood College was established in 1960 is the only co-educational secondary school in New Plymouth , decile 5 with a current role of 800 students.

With the arrival of our new principal Nicola Ngarewa and a new curriculum flexible for each individual student, we are seeking ongoing support in donations to maintain the school's existing farm.

The school does not receive any funding from the Ministry of Education to maintain the 6.2 hectares, which is why we have stock to keep the rough terrain maintained. Donations will be used to purchase tools, equipment, fencing supplies, fertilization, pest and weed control, and if the provision allows plant and machinery ie quad bike.

Donations received will enhance the students learning experience and support our fantastic agriculture tutor, who manages our farm whilst teaching city kids the rural farm life skills which currently 120 students participate in.

The agriculture programme is a fantastic learning opportunity for our students, who take field trips to rural farms and participate in drenching and shearing. We would love for them to experience more with your help and generosity to maintain our existing school farm.
