Forest school farming for children

Children Growing in Freedom

GrowFree offers children a wide range of outdoor-focused activities on the farm and in the surrounding countryside.

Sessions are Wednesdays 9:30am – 3:30pm during term-time.

“Forest school has a holistic approach to learning and encourages children to develop at their own pace both emotionally and practically”

GrowFree sessions are inspired by an exploration of the landscape and its diverse habitats through the changing seasons.

Students develop a deep interest and understanding of their natural surroundings and respect for the environment through hands-on learning experiences.


Activities include

  • Food growing and enterprise
  • Ecosystems and habitat regeneration
  • Campfire cooking 
  • Animal care
  • Woodland crafts
  • Exploration of nature and wildlife

Sessions are led by Mike who is a qualified Forest School teacher with 8 years experience of running Junior Farmers at Incredible Farm in Todmorden.
