Noah’s Ark Children’s Venture
Noah’s Ark Children’s Venture is a residential facility for disadvantaged young people experiencing social or educational exclusion. Based in Macaroni Wood in Gloucestershire, the site offers a unique escape into nature for inner-city children, featuring sensory rooms, animals, games, adventure playgrounds and a BMX track. Noah’s Ark Children’s Venture is using funding from The Fore to develop a new ?Back to Nature? programme, using 8 strips of allotment (currently abandoned) to focus on growing food and gardening. The programme aims to provide real world settings for formal and informal training in literacy, numeracy, work and social skills, and core skills in horticulture itself.
