Climate Action Farm in a Box – Empowering children to confront the Climate Crisis.

farm in a box

Climate Action Farm in a Box is a free, hands-on, cross-curricular programme that builds connections between farming, the food we eat, and climate change.

Developed by education specialists The Country Trust, the Box is aimed to support Key Stage 2 (7-11 years) pupils by introducing the concept and consequence of global warming whilst inviting them to reflect and explore their feelings around this often-overwhelming subject.

You may have come across the Country Trust, but if not, we’re a charity which creates opportunities for children to build confidence, make connections and develop curiosity through food and farming experiences. We do this through four programmes; farm visits, week-long residentials, year-long food programmes in schools and lastly, Farm in a Box.

Farm in a Box is our latest programme which was developed in response to Covid-19.

CPRE, the countryside charity recently commissioned a participant-led research project exploring inequalities in access to the countryside for people of colour.

The report found that experiences of racism and lack of access can create barriers to participation in rural spaces for people of colour.

Funded by CPRE SEMs Maxwell Ayamba completed the Access to Nature Participant Research Project (Ethnographic Peer research) and was published as part of the Access to nature in the English countryside research project report.
