Down a chestnut strewn leafy lane hidden in the wild's of St Martin's parish is Gracie Davies Farm School Initiative.
Returning from college in Edinburgh, Gracie felt the pull of the land and wanted to share what she had learned about the benefits of being outside, growing organic food, tending to animals and decided the best way to pass this on was to introduce children at an early age to farming.
Designed by Gracie the venture offers children the opportunity to get down and dirty in the safest of environments. As a venture her whole family is involved. They watch over the children, involving them in every aspect of growing food, caring for animals, sharing a love for the land, its all Gracie's vision and it's beautifully delivered.
At the end of every session, fully laden with bags of fresh produce, the kids are reluctant to leave and one can see why.
Everyone is welcome and if you have kids let them experience a great learning initiative.
