Farm­ing in your school grounds — Wood­land Focus

17th Mar 2021

LEAF Edu­ca­tion in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the South Downs Nation­al Park Author­i­ty is pleased to offer a num­ber of FREE teacher train­ing ses­sions. These ses­sions all look at how you can incor­po­rate food, farm­ing and the coun­try­side in sim­ple ways using your school ground. Each online ses­sion will take place with a vir­tu­al tour on farm. Fund­ing for this work has come from the Nation­al Park Author­i­ty COVID-19 Recov­ery Fund.

This FREE session will take place virtually, with your host in a woodland within the South Downs and will explore the different ways that the farmer is caring for the woodland environment as well as keeping the nation fed. We will investigate how teaching and learning experiences can be enhanced using woodland areas within a school’s own grounds, however large or small they are. Links to further supportive resources and organisations will be included, as will the offer of further sessions for pupils in-school or on-farm.

Session aims and outcomes

Please note: This session will be suitable for all members of staff keen to learn more about how woodland spaces can be used to engage pupils.
