Butterfly Lodge Education Centre

Abberton

Butterfly Lodge Education Centre offers holistic one to one training and therapeutic experiences in a farm environment. All work is done at a pace suitable to the learner and the centre is open to anyone who would like to benefit from this form of therapeutic and educational activity. The site itself boasts 2 fully equipped classrooms, including a disabled toilet and kitchen facility, as well as a small animal centre, stables, goat barn with fully operational mechanical dairy as well as fields of grazing animals such as pygmy goats, sheep and cows. The farm also aims to be as environmentally friendly as possible, recycling water and using renuable energy from the farm\'s wind turbine and solar pannels. As the centre is set in the heart of the Essex countryside certain conservation activities are also available alongside a horticultural project making use of our vegetable plot and polytunnel. Students and farm helpers coming to the centre can choose to specialise in one area of agricultural expertise, for example horse care or poultry care, or they can choose to come to enjoy the experiences as a whole and engage with all animals across the board. In this manner we can create tailor made courses for individuals and small groups.<br /><br />
