Crimsham Farm Documentary Film funded by Sussex Community Foundation 2023Dates: 24 Aug - Venue: Crimsham Farm Address: Lower Bognor Rd, Bognor Regis, PO20 1AZ Map →
Crimsham Farm is a unique educational environment that promotes hands-on learning opportunities that encourage exploration, experimentation, and creativity. Based just North of Bognor Regis and run by Veterans of the Armed Forces and young adults with learning difficulties, the farm acts as an alternative education provision, providing a space away from school for students who struggle to fit with the models of mainstream education and as a therapeutic centre for students with Special Educational Needs.
I was commissioned by Sussex Community Foundation to make a short film interviewing some of the team and to document some of the activities. Having been a farmer in a previous life I welcome initiatives like these that offer a place for individuals who find an educational environment overwhelming.
