Our charity provides learning experience for students of all ages and abilities in a varied and stimulating garden of nearly 6 acres

We provide field based sessions on growing and conservation for schools and groups free of charge.

We currently provide:

  • over 3 acres of cultivated ‘market’ garden for volume food production
  • an acre of developing natural habitat
  • a field ‘education centre’ of solar tunnel, protected space and ‘pocket gardens’ for schools and groups free of charge
  • voluntary work experience for our supporters, all local families and individuals as a ‘Kent Shed’ project for wellbeing (click here)
  • a growing team of voluntary amateur gardeners to provide the skills and knowledge of mostly organic or better (permaculture) growing
  • planned expansion of our resources on site to provide all-weather study centre, plant propagation and further skill resources in our ‘Field Kitchen’ and off-site in the communities of Larkfield, Ditton and Maidstone to run workshops and lead discussion of low carbon living.
  • further work includes accredited training and apprenticship, new conservation study and environment care through use of appropriate technology
