Oxbow Education

Cultivating Connections Through Outdoor Exploration

Whether on the farm, at school, or at home, Oxbow’s Education team (OxEd) aims to create unique experiences for learners to directly engage with and relate to the natural world through sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. 

By cultivating deeper curiosity and connections with nature, we lay the foundations to be the change we want to see in the world—giving people the inspiration, tools, and confidence to nurture relationships with their community, the food they eat, and their local ecosystem.
