Devon Education For Sustainable Education Working Group

Wow that’s a long boring title for our post isn’t it! What it refers to though is actually very exciting. No really, it is!We joined this group with the long name and its a collection of inspiring people from all sorts of organisations across Dartmoor, Exmoor, the Devon coast and beyond who are passionate about delivering outdoor learning to schools across Devon.

Last week was their annual conference at Buckfastleigh Abbey and nearly 100 different schools from across Devon came to learn more about outdoor education and share ideas with each other.

We were chuffed to be asked to run a cob building workshop for the teachers and different educaiton providers. We showed the teachers how to make cob or daub and then together we built a wattle and daub wall. We talked about the Anglo Saxon Houses we build in schools, the pizza ovens we build in schools and everything else mud related we do!

It was a great day. If anyone who couldn’t make the conference would like to learn more about our work in schools teaching cob building then please get in touch on 01297 444275 or message us via the contact page on here.
