Exciting education opportunities at Field Farm Project
Our tranquil location in the South Downs National Park offers a wealth of ecosystems and natural environments to be explored by all students. Through an exciting range of environmental education we aim to instil a sense of curiosity, responsibility and understanding towards our natural world, helping to develop our children into confident, responsible and healthy adults.
Current research is showing time and again, the positive benefits of direct and frequent contact with the natural world for our children, young people and adults. We have long recognised and seen for ourselves significant development in young people’s confidence, social skills, self-awareness and general happiness levels when attending our long term programmes.
With a focus on individuals’ personal development, we aim to help children and young people discover their potential through engagement with and understanding of our natural environment. Programmes are designed to meet the needs and requirements of each group and are flexible to evolve over long term programmes. We have a strong emphasis on creativity of ideas and craft using natural materials sourced sustainably and locally.
We are very proud to be recognised providers of the John Muir Award and work closely with a number of schools on delivery this excellent award.

It's a wonderful place to take a class
Awesome day at Field Farm Project with my class doing Bushcraft Studies. Children had an amazing time building shelters, making fire, weaving willow platters and cooking elderflower fritters.
