Here at Rockscape we believe in educating as many people as possible to embrace sustainable farming at that starts with the local community.
We run a student placement program with Bishop Burton and Riseholme Colleges to encourage young people into the agricultural and renewable energy industries, providing practical experience coupled with the use of modern technology in an innovative, forward thinking organisation.
We are always keen to learn from others and this was highlighted when we held the 2016 IAgrM Farm Planner Competition which involved universities from across the country visiting our organisation and then carrying out a report of their recommendations in how we could improve in a number of areas. The external views these student provided were interesting and refreshing, making us think outside of the box but at the same time remembering our values.
We host farm walks and site tours to a wide range groups, including young farmers, colleges and schools helping young people understand why our industry is so important to the land, wildlife and environment.
