American Farm School – Annual celebration – Thessaloniki


The American Farm School is the premier institution in southeastern Europe for education and research in agriculture, food systems, environmental studies and other life sciences related to our sustainable future. Founded in 1904 by enlightened American educators, the School continues to apply its hallmark “learn by doing” approach to educate students of all ages. Divisions include the Elementary School of Environmental Education, High School, and Perrotis College of Agriculture, Environment and Life Sciences.


On November 13th we had the chance to visit the campus and enjoy the annual celebration of  Saint Chrisostomos. A small bazaar with local products was organized and all the staff of the AFS along with friends of the Institution celebrated this special day.


Greek loukoumades with honey were served to everybody and the day was completed with folklore dances.
