Hampshire Country Learning (part of The Country Trust) provides FREE educational visits to local working farms throughout the Hampshire area. We receive funds from a variety of sources to ensure that we are able to work with as many different schools as possible, so that the next generation understand where their food really comes from and the importance of the countryside.
We are delighted to announce the details of our Agricultural Show Society projects for 2016:
As part of our work we coordinate Countryside Education Projects for local agricultural show societies across the Hampshire area. During Farmhouse Breakfast Week, teachers from schools within 20 miles of each showground are invited to come and share a locally sourced cooked breakfast in a nearby farmhouse kitchen. During the meeting we share lots of free educational resources and discuss local visit opportunities. Teachers share ideas and experiences, encouraging others to fully utilise the working countryside as an engaging and enriching educational experience.
