The award winning Chatham Green Project is a farm education and conservation initiative on 400 acres of farmland in the heart of Essex
Focused on sustainable land use, the project investigates how we can utilise the land more effectively to better balance the 21st century needs of farming, nature and communities. Through this initiative, we provide National Curriculum linked educational activities for over 3,000 school aged pupils each year. In addition to this, we operate an environmental monitoring programme to record the changes in the land over time.
During his visit to the Chatham Green Project on 14th September, Prince Harry met with pupils engaged in a range of outdoor learning activities, all underpinned by the principles of Leave No Trace. The Wilderness Foundation strongly believes in connecting young people with their local environment, in order to build relationships that create a lasting desire to conserve and protect the natural world.
The site is open year round for visiting school and youth groups, as well as offering facilities where we can provide bespoke programmes for children with additional learning needs.
