Traditionally the Daylesford Foundation’s priorities have been to support children and young people in the three areas described above.  Through the funding programme, we placed an emphasis on supporting educational projects which display one or more of the following:

  • practical, hands-on experiences to connect children and young people with their food and its production
  • the promotion of responsible land use and respect for our natural environment; notably organic principles
  • a focus on enterprising, green-field projects; pioneering in approach and execution

In response to a noticeable demand, the Trustees and Grants Board focused on these three areas and in 2015 developed the Agricology project.
