Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
UPDATE 17 MARCH 2020
Understandably, but very sadly, the majority of our visits and programmes are on hold now, though we will be rearranging them just as soon as it is appropriate to do so.
In the meantime, as we can’t take children to farms, we are looking at how we might continue to bring farming to children, and bring the awe and wonder of the outdoors indoors, especially for those without access to gardens or greenspaces. We already have our wonderful webcam here currently watching the lambing shed at Romshed Farm – exciting times ahead - please do share it far and wide.
We are also putting our minds to what more we could create and provide for teachers and parents, particularly with disadvantaged children in mind. If you’re a farmer and would like to get involved, or a teacher who’d like to know more please do message us.
We are also keen to know what provision schools in The Country Trust network will be making for vulnerable/disadvantaged children if the school has to close. Please do get in touch if you think there is a way we might be able to help.
