Each box is packed with hands-on learning for students and meets the needs of teachers by aligning perfectly with the NSW school curriculum, and it doesn’t cost a thing. Funded by the Australian Government’s Building Landcare Community Capacity Program, Ag in a Box delivers on the mission of the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW to engage, educate and entertain our community on the value of sustainable agriculture… and it’s the best way to encourage the next generation to get their hands dirty! This project is jointly funded through the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW and the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
