The Melplash Agricultural Society believes passionately that it is vitally important for the ‘next generation’ to understand the role that farming and agriculture play in the local economy and environment. At a time of great technological change, the Society wishes to inspire the younger generation to take up careers in this exciting industry, not only in farming but also other rural industries.  To read more about our classroom at Washingpool please read our latest newsletter.

DISCOVER FARMING HAS BEEN LAUNCHED TO INFORM, EDUCATE AND ENTHUSE YOUNG PEOPLE

The project started ten years ago with a bursary scheme to support students entering or continuing in further education. This scheme has been very successful and in 2017, twelve awards were made. Now the Society is widening its work to include both primary and secondary school children.
