FarmED, being devel­oped by Cotswold Seeds, is a cen­tre for farm and food edu­ca­tion at Hon­ey­dale Farm near Ship­ton-Under-Wych­wood. The 107 acres of fields include wood­lands, a her­itage orchard, ponds pro­vid­ing nat­ur­al flood man­age­ment, kitchen gar­den, and crops plant­ed to improve the health of the soil and pro­vide habi­tats for wildlife. At the heart of it is a cen­tre, com­pris­ing two build­ings, hous­ing lec­ture and meet­ing spaces for peo­ple to meet to learn, debate and share ideas about sus­tain­able, diverse farm­ing and good food. There will also be a demon­stra­tion barn and kitchen. Work began last year and is due to be com­plet­ed this summer.
