The Island Project



The Island Project Farming & Education centre is a “not for profit” Educational Provision. Based on a unique 4 acre therapeutic farming site, we have Donkeys, Llamas, Goats and small animals – as well as converted stables with different learning zones, workshops, ICT Hub and a café. This environment has been created so that the students can relax in calm and less ridged learning space.
