Young Explorers aims to support youth groups to design a one-day event hosted at a local farm. FWAG SW is facilitating the project and will support the host farmer and youth group throughout the project. 

The theme of the event can be anything from countryside skills to a creative writing workshop but must explore the themes of food, farming, nature and the Dorset National Landscape (formerly Dorset AONB). 

Funding is provided through the Farming in Protected Landscapes Programme. Within the budget is an optional payment to farmers for hosting the event.  

We are hoping to find hosts in the following locations - Dorchester, Bridport and Purbeck. We are also wanting to rally youth groups to attend the day and will be inviting anyone with children between the ages of 11-24 to attend.
