This programme of environmental education for children is called the Lottie Project. Activities range from growing vegetables, fruit, herbs and edible flowers, finding out about native plants and wildlife, changing climate patterns, composting, soil, local history, geology and traditional crafts.

A visit to the allotment costs £7.50 per child
Children who find the classroom challenging often thrive in the hands-on environment of the allotment. They are taught practical skills and encouraged to be creatively inventive, drawing with chalk and charcoal form the site and making natural sculptures using found objects.
We can work with half a school class at a time (min 10 children, max 18).
Schools need to provide a member of staff and parent volunteers, other groups need to provide correct adult/child ratio.
For the past 10 years we have worked with Year 4 children from Lewes schools. We have also worked with Year 6 children on team building sessions, Duke of Edinburgh students, and have hosted Reception age visits and sessions with home school groups.
Experienced facilitators have been running the Lottie since 2004, are first aid trained, DBS checked. The allotment site is insured.
