Moreton Morrell College covers 650 acres of countryside and has been delivering agricultural education for more than 70 years. Students on the courses here are given the opportunity to support the working 230-hectare commercial farm on site and maintain wildlife habitats including woodlands, wetlands and grasslands. Pershore is a smaller, 60-hectare site that includes a nature reserve, conservation area as well as soil and plant science laboratories.
WCG works actively across their sites to put land-based learning into practice by, for example, reducing the use of chemical pesticides and monitoring their cattle closely to reduce methane.
