Abildsø Gård is a stunning old farm in the heart of Oslo, producing honey, vegetables and apple juice to mention some. Together with his wife, children and team, Føyen opened the farm to children who were struggling in school and today they work with 20 schools around the Norwegian capital. “These are children who are bright and eager, but for different reasons don’t fit in at school. Frequently referred to as ‘problem children’, they often drop out of school as soon as they possibly can,” Føyen says. “By giving them access to the farm one day a week they can use their energy differently.”
