Excursion Transport Funding

It has been identified that transporting students for excursions is very costly and can be a large barrier for school undertaking excursions.

Kids to farms can remove this barrier by subsiding transport for grade 3 to 6 classes.

How can we claim a bus subsidy?

  • Bus subsidies are available for excursions to sites and events where students can undertake hands on learning about food and fibre production
  • For a list of possible sites or to find our more visit our webpage or email Claire at kids2farms@tfga.com.au
  • Events may include activities such as Agfest and Science week – Food: Different by Design events.
  • Sites do not have to be those currently listed with us, we are happy to discuss your ideas.
  • Funding is currently only available until 30 June 2022
  • Book your excursions early to secure your spot

The subsidy form can be downloaded here
