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

We just want to thank you, Talia, and all the team at Sadeh, for making our daughter Jessica’s wedding so lovely. The setting was perfect for the chuppah, surrounded by abundant beautiful flowers which you had chosen and planted specially with the chuppah in mind. It made the atmosphere special to Sadeh, and like no other wedding. Simply fabulous. Thank you, Talia, for taking such care with all the planting.

The Sadeh staff were exceptionally friendly and worked so hard on the day of the wedding and in the days leading up to it, with all the preparations. Alex was especially amazing and so were all the rest of the team.

A special mention must be made for the vegan food, which tasted amazing – and we are very fussy! Thank you, Bhavan, for working so hard and being so caring – and such a talented chef!

Love,

Carole and Bernie

Mother of the Bride

Just wanted to thank you again for a lovely stay at Skeet House. The hostel and surroundings are truly beautiful and the girls had a lovely time. Many of them said that they would rather have stayed at the hostel all day and not gone back into the city!

In May, the Sadeh team kindly hosted the year 4 class at Alma Primary for our overnight residential!

Wow, what an incredible experience for absolutely every child (and the teachers too).

It was so lovely to see the children trying something new and embracing the outdoor opportunities that were offered: running, tumbling, jumping and climbing!

We enjoyed learning all about bees, making stinging nettle pesto and foraging through the plants and trees. The children loved the outdoor sessions with Alex and Talia and learnt so much!

Thank you for the welcoming environment from Talia, Yulia, Alex and Brian and the huge effort they all made to accommodate our very specific needs.

We can’t wait to come back!

Thank you for the most rewarding experience.

Alma

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