The new education destination in the heart of the Essex countryside

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.

Our experienced Education Team of Jenna Cains and Richard Corby provide quality Learning Outside the Classroom opportunities for children of all ages.   Our lessons and activities are all curriculum linked, helping teachers to deliver the curriculum in an engaging and connected way.  We cater for children of all abilities, adapting our delivery methods to suit the learning style of our visitors.   We are proud to hold the LOTC Qualtiy Mark.


100% of our visiting teachers agree that our National Curriculum linked activities are suitable for the age group of their children, that topics covered are as agreed and our Education Team score an average 4.67 out of 5 for the method of delivery.     These are statistics we are very proud of and assure you of a great educational visit to Chatham Green.


The Chatham Green Project is a joint initiative of registered charity The Wilderness Foundation and commercial farmers Strutt and Parker (Farms) Ltd.   The programme is supported by a number of charitable and commercial organisations including Natural England, Bayer CropScience and Claas UK.
