At Skeet

SADEH Farm

Skeet also hosts Sadeh, the UK’s fantastic new Jewish farm. Rooted in Torah values, Sadeh cultivates community, grows food, and sows the seeds of change for the next generation. Sadeh focuses on environmental education through a Jewish lens and runs many activities and educational sessions, from planting Tu b’shevat trees to sowing peas, digging up potatoes, linking the Jewish festivals to harvesting the fruits of Sadeh, Tikkun Olam, building Jewish gardens, nature brachot trails and more.

Sadeh Testimonials

Wow! and wow! that was such a great weekend – thank you all very much.

Re-evaluation Counselling Group

My sons Louis and Gabriel have specifically asked me to email you for a lovely day today with the Bromley cheder trip. They loved being on the farm and really enjoyed David the Bee Man’s session (they asked if you could pass on their thanks to him too). They spent most of dinner talking about plants and bees. You all made a big impression!

Mother from Bromley Cheder

We cannot thank you enough for your support and effort to accommodate our children. I can honestly tell you that they thoroughly enjoyed the farming activity and are so much more aware of plants, animals and how we can affect nature.  When we went on our early morning walk, the children recognised some of the herbs you have planted there, as well as the many mini-beasts and butterflies, so that just shows the impact you have made on them.  I have even had some of them collecting rabbit droppings!!
Both Brian and Julia are so amazing and so helpful.  I shall miss this annual trip so much.  Yes, it may be tiring, but the rewards and bonding with the children are priceless.
Thank you for many priceless moments.
Shalom

Clore Tikva Primary School

Sadeh Farm hosted us, a group of researchers from UCL, for an away day and night designed to foster collaboration and team work. We found it to be a perfect environment for our needs. There was lots of space for informal working and lots of activities outside on the farm to help with teamwork and bonding and keep us busy in between work sessions. We had the place to ourselves so we could really relax, and we were made to feel very comfortable and welcome. This is helped by their lovely farm manager Talia who is friendly and approachable and organised all the activities for us. The food (all vegan) was delicious too. All in all a successful stay and we will definitely be back! UCL
