"Besides love and sympathy, animals exhibit other qualities connected with the social instincts, which in us would be called moral."

Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man

La Garenne is determined that our students pay as much attention to the world around them as they do to their studies. The School Farm helps develop a young person’s capacity to nurture and care for their environment. Sustainable practices such as composting, water recycling and waste reduction go hand in hand with learning about the needs of farmers, how life cycles work and the changes of the seasons. Our model farm has chickens, rabbits and goats and an insect hotel. We also have a beehive some 400 metres from the school which produces fragrant alpine honey every year.
