Farms for City Children is an education charity which welcomes more than 3,200 primary school children every year to one of their three farms for a 7 day stay. The charity was founded by Michael Morpurgo OBE and his wife Clare, and the charity has farms in Pembrokeshire, Gloucestershire and Devon.

By being farmers for a week, children grow in self esteem, self confidence and self worth. Fresh air, purposeful work, taking responsibility, contact with animals, good food eaten in a homely environment, a screen free setting and space to play encourage these children to flourish. Their horizons broaden, they learn to work in a team, communicate with one another and they become more responsive back in the classroom and at home. More information on the charity is available on their website: www.farmsforcitychildren.org and follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
