Environmental and Social Governance
The Farmschool venue is quite unique in its Environmental and Social Governance. It sits at the heart of a family farming business that combines a charitable programme, supporting young people, carbon positive farming system and promoting biodiversity.
The Farmschool Charity
The Farmschool charity was established in 2014. We reconnect young people with sustainable farming, food and the environment through our innovative programs.
We farm in a way that protects and enhances our soil, water and air quality. 20% of our farm is devoted to wildlife habitats. We are proud to be carbon positive.
The Farmschool Building
Our building was built to be sustainable. It is heated by a biomass boiler fed by renewable materials and harvests rainwater to reuse on the farm.
