Penn Farm

The study of Agriculture at William Penn High School focuses on two fundamental areas: plant science and animal science. Plant science applies the principles of agriculture, biology, and chemistry of plant life. Connecting to our environmental science program, students combine economics, policy and ecology in order to study ecosystems and natural resources. Our animal science program emphasizes animal nutrition, animal care and how animals interact with our food systems.

Firle community allotment

Learning about food is a life changing adventure! Children often eat only the
foods that they know. When they see, experience, and prepare new foods
they often enjoy the taste. Eat Your Veggies offers a fun environment for
children to experiment with new and sometimes unusual ingredients. The
children cook real food using fresh seasonal organic ingredients with much
of the produce obtained from the school garden or local farms. Small groups
are utilized to encourage touching and tasting of vegetables and to practice

Firle community allotment

We are a community project set up to revitalise the village allotments and engage the community in growing vegetables, herbs, fruit, edible flowers and planting an orchard.

There are about 50 households in the village and 100 children attend the village school. 

We will be working with the village primary school and their cookery teacher to grow food the children can cook in school for their lunch.
