EFCF Conference. Bremen, Germany, 19 - 23 September 2018

The German Federation invites to the EFCF-conference in Bremen:

"We are in contact with our five partners in Bremen and will fix the workshops and program in January/February. Together we will present our pedagogical concept and want to discuss the difficulties (e.g. money) and changes of kids‘ daily life. Another part will be inclusion (e.g. best practice, concept, possibilities). To give you an overview about the different farms we have chosen five different city farms in Bremen. They are not able to represent all cityfarms (more than 500) in Germany but they represent a good average depending on money and social circumstances. We will have space for 80 participations and hope to start the registration in May".

More information will follow.
