From the written evaluations of pupils:  I have learned about the path of food from the soil to the

table.  I have learned that milk comes from farms and that all food

comes from animals and plants.  I learned that it demands alot to work on a farm.  It is a revolutionary way to get useful information!  I didn’t learn anything, just that I should never give up.  I learned alot about food, about locally produced food and

organic methods.  I have more self-confidence through doing the tasks at the

farm.  I learned that I can work with everyone in the class. www.umb.no
