About this course

Join Jan Hornby, gardener at Schumacher College, to learn how to conduct your own biodiversity surveys. Through this practical half day workshop you will learn everything you need to know in order to be able to conduct your own practical surveys in a horticultural space, to get an understanding of the health and diversity of the area you are working in.

This vital step in the planning of your growing or land management strategy is fundamental to approaching the land with an adaptive and regenerative ethos, rather than imposing a preconcieved theory of what is right onto a natural environment. 


Our courses are part of the wider Learning programme at Dartington, and you will join a community of students on site studying at Schumacher College and Dartington Arts School as well as other short course participants, volunteers and visitors.

While you are here we invite you to take part in our learning community life by attending morning meetings, taking part in activities such as meal preparation and clearing, and evening social events. This is entirely voluntary, but participants tell us that taking part adds to their experience at Dartington.
