Chatham Green Project

Chatham Green Project

The award winning Chatham Green Project is a conservation and education initiative on 400 acres of farmland in the heart of Essex. Focused on sustainable land use, the project investigates how we can utilise the land more effectively to better balance the 21st century needs of farming, nature and communities. Through this initiative, we aim to educate over 3,000 school aged pupils each year. In addition to this we operate an environmental monitoring programme to record the changes in the land over time.
