    A little note from Kids to Farms:

    Please be aware that the Kids to Farms team is small – if you need your Ag Pack by a certain date please order at least 2 weeks in advance so we can pack and mail it to you on time!

    We also ask teachers to consider whether Ag Packs will be fully utilised by all your students. Ag Packs are best used in conjunction with food or fibre related units so students can get the most benefit out of them.

    Ag Pack orders for 100+ students will require a short statement from the teacher about how the Ag Packs will add to classroom learning. It’s nothing complicated – it just helps us provide the best Ag Pack possible!
