The Magdalen Environmental Trust

Magdalen is a working organic farm and residential education centre based at Winsham, near Chard in Somerset. Our 132 acres of beautiful rolling countryside are along the banks of the River Axe on the Somerset-Dorset border.

Our diverse landscape, animals and purpose-built residential centre provides a safe and secure environment to learn about organic farming, sustainability and nature.

We provide education programmes for primary and secondary schools and care farming experiences for children and adults with learning disabilities and/or challenging social backgrounds.

Our vision is of a sustainable future in which a healthy environment and thriving, fulfilled communities are integral and essential to one another.
