This workshops aim is to establish in students an understanding and appreciation of the natural environment around them. The interdependence of all creatures and food chains.

Students will take a tour of the whole site at Cogges Manor Farm and will become nature detectives – seeking out animal habitats, learning about plants and taking a hands-on role in planting their seedling and making their own compost. This is a fun, outdoor workshop that can be tailored to the different seasons of the year.

Learning outcomes:
– To have a greater understanding of local wildlife. See first-hand where different animals live and what they eat.
– To look closely at different plants and understand their life cycle and what they need to grow.
– Learn how to plant a seedling, study a pollinator and make some good quality compost to feed their plants on in the Autumn, harvest vegetables from the garden

Please note: This is designed to be a full day workshop, but there is flexibility and they are happy to try and work around your timings if required.
