In the heart of the West Country at the confluence of Dorset, Somerset and Devon lies Magdalen Farm, 132 acres of organic countryside that is the home of the Magdalen Environmental Trust.
Magdalen helps people from right across the community to engage with nature, better understand the environment, and to start off on the road toward sustainable living.
Much of our work is conducted on the farm, which boasts a diverse range of managed and natural habitats provide the basis for a wide range of courses, workshops and eco-adventures, helping us to encourage both children and adults to learn new skills, enjoy experiences and develop a deeper understanding of the countryside and a more sustainable approach to life, and to provide therapeutic experiences either on a self-referred basis, or as part of an overarching care programme.
In the wider community we deliver forest school sessions, install environmentally friendly facilities in school grounds, and reach out to people who are vulnerable through personal circumstance including children living in poverty or other disadvantage.
From school visits, care farming and conference facilities to adult day courses and civil marriage ceremonies, our vision is to create a vibrant, inspiring environment to be enjoyed by as many people as possible.
