Lincolnshire Outdoor Learning uses circular economy ideas to create outdoor Learning Spaces in order to facilitate a greater appreciation and experience of the local natural environment.  

LOL is a not-for-profit social enterprise established in 2011. Your money. ie our Sow Study Sustain profits – in true circular economy style – fund our Lincolnshire Wolds Micro Farm. Our Micro farm was set up during the pandemic to help vulnerable local people. We began feeding the local food bank with organic fresh produce in August 2023. This has also funded the building of the world’s first vertical and circular growing system in a Lincolnshire school in the most deprived area of Lincolnshire (opens Sept 2023).

We work with Teachers and Pupils in schools to develop bespoke Outdoor Learning environments from the ground up, creating and constructing spaces and environments to engage pupils in a fun and stimulating way to learn and have a better understanding of the outside world, nature and the environment we live in.  

Our Rivers, Coasts and Settlements Fieldwork and Outdoor Learning activities within the school grounds are linked directly to the curriculum.

We also work with Local Community Groups to support them in their greater understanding of the Natural World and to support their aims and objectives.

Contact Us to find out more about how we can create and use your Outdoor Learning Environments within your school grounds or Community Space and find out why our work is so important to students, teachers and local communities.
