School Visits to Abbotts Ann Watercress Farm
Children in the Andover district have been discovering the wonders of the natural environment during visits to Vitacress Salads’ Abbotts Ann Farm run in conjunction with Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust’s education team. The visits have been promoted by the Vitacress Conservation Trust, which has also provided equipment such as stream dipping kits and identification worksheets.
Through some up close and personal encounters with minibeasts, freshwater creatures etc, we hope to have inspired the children involved to protect local wildlife for years to come. The Farm Manager, Ron Bainbridge has also taught them about watercress production and encouraged them to eat more of it!
We are currently arranging visits for this summer.
If you know of a school or organisation (Brownies, Beavers etc) who would like to visit, please contact either:
