With an increasing awareness of the environmental impact of travel (especially by air), we are encouraging all our trainees to consider overland travel. Please take your time and plan your travel to us overland. There are good train and bus connections within the UK from London down to Totnes. We can pick you up from the railway station in Totnes or coach stop on the main road (A38). In our experience, travelling long distances overland takes time. Please plan your journey to us with this in mind. You might need to leave your home country a day or more earlier to arrive with us on the start date of our programme.

Sometimes personal circumstances including time pressures or health concerns mean that flying is the only way to come to us. That is fine. We feel we need to consider our overall travel impact and so if some people can come overland we will start to reduce the overall environmental impact. Once you arrive, you’ll see we continue to actively explore, at every opportunity, different ways to reduce our environmental impact and we are making progression. You can join in and contribute to our exploration, helping us live, learn and work for wildlife at #LowerSharphamFarm.
