Let Nature Feed Your Senses: farm and wildlife visits for disabled people, older people and young people
Most of us these days have little experience of farming, and this is especially true for people who have difficulty getting out to the countryside. Let Nature Feed Your Senses gives people with disabilities of all ages, older people and people who live in some of the most disadvantaged areas of England, the chance to experience food production first-hand, up close and personal.
Farms, city farms and nature reserves across England have come together to offer sensory-rich visits that help make the connections between food, farming and nature. So far we have welcomed groups from inner city schools, groups with learning disabilities and sensory impairments, and older people with dementia, to experience the plants and animals that help to feed us.

There's no substitute for hands-on experience, and sensory-rich visits allow visitors to touch, smell, hear and taste food production as it happens, in a safe, accessible environment, guided by friendly farmers and nature experts who know the places like the backs of their hands.
