Students come in their year groups and can number anything from 15 up to 90.

Countryside Skills: We work with students from year 9 upwards depending on the school. The course covers animal husbandry, health and safety, woodland management, and leisure.

Other activities: Delivering family sessions at Earth Trust Centre and at our community reserves, running workshops for community/youth groups, delivering outreach workshops.

About us
Earth Trust is an environmental charity with 40 years’ experience in caring for and inspiring others with green spaces. We believe that connection to nature can catalyse action to protect the environment, as well as provide vital mental and physical wellbeing benefits for people.

Together with our supporters, Earth Trust is guardian of some extremely special and inspiring places full of nature and heritage. We care for 500 hectares of woodland, farmland, wildflower meadows and wetlands, which receive 200,000 visits a year.

We use these amazing places to engage and inspire people and to demonstrate nature-based solutions to climate, biodiversity and public health crises, that we hope others will take and use elsewhere. We work to champion access to green space for everyone, to deepen engagement with nature, and to share our learnings about managing land in a way that is gentle on the earth.
