What we do
We work with individuals, groups, schools, businesses and other charities and community based organisations to deliver engaging hands on land and kitchen based social and educational opportunites related to food and farming and the environment.
Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do. They come to learn new skills, share knowledge, meet people, be inspired and feel part of a meaningful project and a connected community. Our volunteers are invaluable in helping us grow fresh food for the community and develop and maintain the site.
Supported volunteering farm nurture sessions
These sessions are for people of any age who might feel marginalised, vulnerable or isolated including people with mental and physical health challenges, special needs, refugees, young people not in education or training, people affected by or at risk of homelessness and
offenders and ex-offenders. The focus of the sessions are on developing an increased sense of well being and connectedness, confidence building, working in a team and life skills. Sessions vary but can include; preparation, planting and growing, cooking, animal care and a variety of tasks relating to the ongoing upkeep and maintenance of the farm.
Hands on sessions that help children and young peopl to thrive and reach their full potential both in and out of school. Focussed around food and farming and nature these sessions inspire children and young people to develop a healthy relationship with food, make healthier food choices and develop the confidence to cook and grow their own food. The sessions support teachers and schools to deliver environmental education curriculum.
These workshops help to build skills/knowledge within our volunteer group as well as the wider community. They aim to improve skills to ‘grow your own’ at home, provide cooking sessions to build confidence, skills and culture around cooking and eating together – for families, adults, young people and children.
