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 provide National Curriculum linked educational activities for 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.
Our Project Goals
To educate schools through National Curriculum based education programmes, to connect future generations with farming and nature; To continue to produce enough high quality food to meet the demands of a growing population.
100% of our visiting teachers agree that our National Curriculum linked activities are suitable for the age group of their children, that topics covered are as agreed and our Education Team score an average 4.67 out of 5 for the method of delivery. These are statistics we are very proud of and assure you of a great educational visit to Chatham Green.
