School Programme

During UK school terms, we run bespoke curriculum-based activities for all ages and learning abilities at our care farm , Sweettree Fields Farm.

Programmes include learning about animal and plant lifecycles, animal and insect habitats, animal husbandry and handling, planting and harvesting vegetables and plants, team-building woodland obstacle course and nature trail, outdoor cooking, and nutrition and healthy living.

We offer long-term programmes and half-day activities, and specialise in working with students with additional needs.

Let It Grow – Young Farmers

Our youth transitional day service, Let it Grow- Young Farmers,  is personalised to each persons abilities, interests and support plan or personal goals and aims to increase independence, confidence, practical skills and transferable life skills with the aim of helping each person reach their full potential.

This quiet outdoor environment suits people who require more support or a consistent routine. Our care farm has been specifically built to enable our participants be as independent as possible and has many physical features that facilitates this.

The service is structured to fit within school times and term dates, and activities can cover all aspects of farm life with the focus centring on experiential learning, social skills and transferable life skills.

“My son has loved the farm so much – it has breathed fresh air into him. It has been great for him to get away from his Xbox, and he is exhausted at the end of the day!” – Mother of a programme participant.
