Children, Schools and Families

The Heritage Lottery project in 2010 enabled the educational work of Great Dixter to be broadened, through the addition of new facilities and the appointment of Education Officer Catherine, who manages and develops most of Great Dixter’s education programmes, particularly those with younger audiences.

Several grants have been secured over the year to support this work, including from the Ernest Kleinwort Charitable Trust, The Ernest Cook Trust, and The Heritage Conservation Trust. 

Grants from the Monument Trust and the Heritage Lottery Fund enabled us to convert old Farm buildings into the Education space at Dixter Farm and funded resources to work with, excite, and enthuse younger people through our work with schools and families. Our programmes draw from the garden, our rich biodiversity and wildlife, traditional woodland crafts, and our history and collections.
