Clore Tikvah primary school

We cannot thank you enough for your support and effort to accommodate our children. I can honestly tell you that they thoroughly enjoyed the farming activity and are so much more aware of plants, animals and how we can affect nature. When we went on our early morning walk, the children recognised some of the herbs you have planted there, as well as the many mini-beasts and butterflies, so that just shows the impact you have made on them. I have even had some of them collecting rabbit droppings!! Both Brian and Julia are so amazing and so helpful. I shall miss this annual trip so much. Yes, it may be tiring, but the rewards and bonding with the children are priceless. Thank you for many priceless moments. Shalom Tess Xx

University College London

Sadeh Farm hosted us, a group of researchers from UCL, for an away day and night designed to foster collaboration and team work. We found it to be a perfect environment for our needs. There was lots of space for informal working and lots of activities outside on the farm to help with teamwork and bonding and keep us busy in between work sessions. We had the place to ourselves so we could really relax, and we were made to feel very comfortable and welcome. This is helped by their lovely farm manager Talia who is friendly and approachable and organised all the activities for us. The food (all vegan) was delicious too. All in all a successful stay and we will definitely be back!

Sadeh provided our students with a meaningful, creative and memorable experience that incorporated informal education with environmental issues. Thank you Sadeh!

Jess and Aidan's wedding

We just want to thank you, Talia, and all the team at Sadeh, for making our daughter Jessica’s wedding so lovely. The setting was perfect for the chuppah, surrounded by abundant beautiful flowers which you had chosen and planted specially with the chuppah in mind. It made the atmosphere special to Sadeh, and like no other wedding. Simply fabulous. Thank you, Talia, for taking such care with all the planting. The Sadeh staff were exceptionally friendly and worked so hard on the day of the wedding and in the days leading up to it, with all the preparations. Alex was especially amazing and so were all the rest of the team. A special mention must be made for the vegan food, which tasted amazing – and we are very fussy! Thank you, Bhavan, for working so hard and being so caring - and such a talented chef! Love, Parents of the bride

Just wanted to thank you again for a lovely stay at Skeet House. The hostel and surroundings are truly beautiful and the girls had a lovely time. Many of them said that they would rather have stayed all day and not gone back into the city!
