Science - ecology
Airfield Estate has a working farm with dedicated areas of ecological interest. Our junior ecology workshop takes place in our fields, hedgerows, ponds and woodland walk. We offer an ecology option that utilises our compositionally diverse natural areas and our trained education guides work with the students to create a base of information that will encourage the students to use their own knowledge and skills to decode the natural world around them.
As a working farm, Airfield Estate offers the opportunity for you and your students to experience farming as a system. Our guides will bring the students through the farm and gardens to demonstrate how all our systems depend on each other and ultimately how food is produced. The guides will also detail how waste is managed across the estate and how we are planning for the future by using new research and technology to help us to farm efficiently.
