“A fantastic resource with very passionate and knowledgable staff. ‘Real hands on learning’ Bretforton Village School 3/10/19 on a self-led visit
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of the
volunteers who were involved in our fantastic day! We felt so welcomed and well looked after. The children had a great time, learnt lots and came back to school brimming with enthusiasm and
excitement about their trip! It was lovely to see them so engaged and soaking up the wealth of knowledge and experience that you and your team have. They particularly enjoyed apple-pressing and
picking apples from the trees! The site is a fantastic resource, and the children gained so much from each area that they visited. We are looking forward to baking the apples that we picked in school
next week, and will send you some photos from the day and also of the baking that we will be doing back at school.
I'm sure we will be back soon to visit your beautiful site.
Many thanks once again,"

“We chose the Trust because it was local and offered a wide range of activities for Key Stage 2. We compared fruit trees in different seasons: Autumn and Summer. Link with life cycles in Science. Carried out a bug hunt, Observed wild flowers – identifying male/female parts. The weather was wet on the second visit but we completed our activities using the on-site classroom. Would definitely recommend.”
“Thank you for welcoming us today, the children recalled many things you had mentioned and recorded
them in their books. The orchard and ponds looked so pretty with a variety of wild flowers, even in the very much needed rain( but perhaps not today!)
On our return to school the children viewed the wild flowers under the magnifier ,to recap how pollination works, to their delight they spotted a Green Fly feeding on the Dog Rose very fascinating in its enlarged appearance.”
