The Rotary Club and Mitre 10 raised $700 to  buy equipment for the school’s urban farm.
 
Dr McMillan said the support was essential to keep the initiative going. 
 
Everything at the farm was made by the pupils and was important for their experiential learning in building connections with everything they did, he said.
