Our schools programme provides an outdoor learning opportunity for school and college students aged 16-19 with a learning disability and autism. The aim is to support a successful transition to adulthood for these students by widening their social networks, enabling them to participate in a working environment and to understand the habits and culture that accompany a workplace and take part in a range of land-based tasks.
Students work alongside our co-farmer groups on a range of activities.

In 2016, we started an innovative outreach project, testing the feasibility of supporting people with autism and learning disabilities (including school students) on other farms and green spaces in Oxfordshire managed by fantastic people who are willing to share their beautiful and productive spaces with us.
We are delighted to have worked with a number of Oxfordshire organisations including:
- Blenheim Park Farm in Woodstock (mixed)
- Cornbury Park in Charlbury (mixed)
- Fair Close Community Farm in Wolvercote (livestock)
- Kingston Hill Farm in Kingston Bagpuize (dairy)
- Ivydene Farm in Cassington (mixed)
- Eynsham Market Garden’s Long Hanborough site
- Long Mead Wildlife Conservation Project in Eynsham
- Oxford Wood Recycling in Abingdon (woodwork)
- Wood End farm in Farmoor (dairy)
- Crinkle Crankle Garden at Ruskin College
- Harcourt Arboretum (conservation)
Our vision is to have a network of participating farms and green spaces around Oxfordshire where more people are regularly benefiting from land-based programmes, accessing places close to where they live.
