This study aims to describe the impact of a non-formal education programme for children as an attempt to develop their civic virtue in the environmental field. One programme attempted to realise the goal is school urban farming in Bandung. This study used a qualitative method in approaching the programme with the author being actively involved in the programme (participant as observer). The informants were chosen using the purposive sampling technique, while the data were collected by observation, interview, and document analysis. The results showed that school urban farming was effectively able to teach children about ecology and build ecological mentality in their minds. School urban farming was found significant in improving value orientation of the environment, which might be able to generate environmentally significant behaviour. Thus, the programme helped institutionalized civic virtue in the environmental field through learning process.
