The Living Land

Rotary Club of Sittingbourne Invicta members volunteering as stewards for The Living Land event at Detling

Helping at The Living Land

The Living Land is a FREE, one day event offered to Kent school children in years 3 and 4 aimed at educating young children in the areas of farming, agriculture, countryside and healthy eating within the beautiful landscape of the Kent Showground, home to the Kent County Show.

The Living Land is a well-established event and is hugely popular with Kent schools. The timetable of activities includes the opportunity to see and touch farm animals, taste local produce, see dancing sheep at the “Sheep Show”, Birds of Prey and many other displays and demonstrations. Most of the activities are interactive, with a wealth of organisations on hand to share their knowledge with the children and can easily be linked to the school curriculum.

The educational experience is invaluable and taking pupils away from the normal classroom environment, enhances the ability to learn.

Volunteering Opportunity

This is a rewarding event for all of those involved in stewarding. Invicta members have helped at this event for two years.

With 2,800 children attending this event there's plenty of opportunity to get involved with the stewarding.

Stewarding Times

The day begins for stewards at 8.00am and finish at approximately 2.15pm . Drinks and a packed lunch is provided for all stewards.
