Lesson Outline

We will be joined by technicians and experts who will tell us all about vertical farming, the science behind it, and what makes it sustainable for the environment.

During our time at Farm Urban, teaching will be put into a real-life context through exciting demos, recordings and animated infographics.

The lesson itself will explore how seeds and bulbs grow, identify and describe the functions of a plant, how water is transported within plants, and discuss the future of sustainable farming.
