The Husbandry School is set in a stunning location in the heart
of the Devon Countryside. From its hill top vantage point you can
see the breathtaking tapestry of the landscape unfolding into the
distance; from craggy moorland tors to rich green valleys rolling
downwards to the coast, its unique setting brings a sense of place
and history alive.
The Husbandry School provides the perfect
place to explore:
- Devon’s natural
environment and landscape
- Past historical events and influences
- Devon’s cultural
identity, customs and traditional practices
- Our place in the landscape
We can offer one off or longer sessions, tailored to enhance your
curriculum provision. We work with you to meet individual teachers
and groups needs, designing the programme around you. We currently
have successful primary and secondary school pilot projects taking
place and more planned for 2012/13.
As well as exploring geography and history we can also run sessions
that look at:
- Alternative energy
- Where does out food
come from – developing
a connection to the land
- Growing fruit and vegetables
- How to plants seeds and nurture seedlings
- How to set up a veg garden at your school
- Rural skills
- Art on the land
- Creative workshops, painting, drawing, felt making, paper making
story telling etc.
- Learning about animals, chickens, sheep, pigs and goats
- Cooking skills
We have a huge outdoor learning space as well as a number of yurts
that can be used for indoor classroom space, an outdoor wood fired
oven and facilities to make and provide lunch for pupils.
