Chilton Magic Garden

About Chilton Magic Garden

Chilton Magic Garden aims to empower children, their families and schools to engage with a holistic range of outdoor learning programs over a sustained time in one of the most beautiful settings of the Kentish countryside. Immersing in the wild places of Chilton, the sprawling fields, the arboretum, riverbed and woodlands, creates a relaxed, unrestrained, liberating and inclusive learning space that encourages freedom to play whilst harnessing children’s curiosity for self-discovery. We provide our own nature-inspired and science-oriented teaching towards an extended horizon of the children's education journey. Fostering a child’s resilience, responsibility, resourcefulness and resolution. We offer story-telling about the ancient river valley and the settlers, who lived here over 2000 years ago. as learnt from archaeological finds of the Anglo-Saxon burial ground. Walking the perimeter of Chilton Farm fields up to the ancient woodlands, you can learn about wildlife and the identity of local species of trees. We will offer engagement in wildlife conservation and management of the declining ancient woodland, by coppicing, nurturing saplings and planting new trees. You can practice the ancient skills of archery and you will have the opportunity to immerse yourselves in traditional skills such as bushcraft, building and lighting a campfire for outdoor cooking and camp building or you can just relax and meditate under the trees in a woodland hammock. Try something new with Nature Nights, where you camp out with friends and experience nocturnal nature on bat walks, mini-beast hunts and enjoy BBQ around the campfire.
