The SHED isn't a shed at all but a purpose built outdoor classroom with adjacent growing area! It offers a secure learning base for children, young people and their families to learn about food, farming and the outdoors. The classroom is a self-contained learning space which provides basic resources and equipment to run an appropriate activity linked to the season, year group and ability of the children.
The classroom has fully accessible toilets, a kitchen, outdoor sinks and storage for coats and wellies. There is also a small parking area available for a minibus and several cars.
The classroom is used as part of the programme of Guided Farm Visits but has also been extended to small targeted groups who book and make independent use of the classroom and outside learning area. Staff are expected to attend an induction training before they book the classroom.
