Sutton Community Farm offers visits for local schools

Sutton Community Farm (SCF) is a 7 acre farm located in Wallington, south London. The farm is community-owned and not-for-profit and produces a wide variety of vegetables which are largely sold through an organic veg box scheme run by the farm.

Offer to local schools

SCF has received funding to subsidise the cost of local schools visits to attend workshop sessions.

Workshops focus on teaching young people how food is grown and where it comes from, in a setting that allows them to connect with nature in an outdoor learning environment.

The farm is set up to welcome pupils in either Key Stage 2 or 3, and can be flexible in fitting workshops around themes that link to the curriculum.

The funding needs to be spent by the end of the school year in 2018, and so SCF are looking to develop partner relationships with local schools.

Farming happens all year round, with different activities depending on the season.

School visits are possible on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Please contact the farm to check availability.

More information can be found on their website or call the farm phone Monday – Friday 8am – 4.30pm at 07722 156097.
