Nursery Fields Forever: Farming preschool would teach kids how to grow their own food

Farming-preschool
Food security is on the United Nation’s agenda for decades. With the ever more risks, it is normal to want to know more about how to grow food. In this context, teaching kids how to grow food will do plenty of good things about stopping food waste and nurturing for a healthier future. A few people from Italy have come up with an interesting and clever method to achieve that. Their design of an innovative nursery school has granted them the AWR International Ideas Competition award. The “Nursery Fields Forever” reimagines how nursery schools would look like if the central concept of them were to be farming. A unique educational approach is born, perfectly combining nature and growing food into the curriculum. Check out the plans and designs to get a better picture.

The “Nursery Fields Forever”, a part farm and part school offers three approaches to learning: learning from nature, learning from technique, and learning from practice. “We think that kids should enjoy nature,” said Edoardo Capuzzo Dolcetta to Fast Company. “So we designed this strange school: No classrooms, but open spaces where vegetables grow inside and animals can come in too. It’s a mixing of the two things, school and nature.”
