Delivering enriching outdoor educational experiences to school pupils is fundamental to what we do at Sacrewell and welcoming young people to our beautiful countryside setting allows us to fulfil the aims of the William Scott Abbott Trust. We invite your learners to explore our Farming with Nature workshops in our beautiful countryside setting.
Farming with Nature Workshops
The Sacrewell Education Team are thrilled to be able to offer a wide range of educational workshops for your pupils to participate in this academic year. Each has been carefully designed to link with the National Curriculum whilst giving children a chance to escape the classroom and be immersed in our inspiring natural environment.
The Farming with Nature workshops cover six interlinking topics: Soil, Pollination, Plants, Field to Fork, Farm Animals, and Wildlife. Investigate why worms are so important, discover food growing in the fields and help look after our kitchen garden – to name a few! Please email [email protected] for more information on the individual workshops that are available.
