What the Community Farm will bring will be a unique venture to harness opportunities for life long learning, developing partnerships with other organisations and agencies, and living healthier and happier lives. We want to share what we learn with other members of the community, giving them the opportunity for hands on experience on a working farm.
We do this by opening up the farm on Sundays 12-4pm to the public, holding workshops for people to take part in planting, letting them help with feeding the animals, or giving them the opportunity to build a bug hotel or bird box for their garden. To compliment this we sell the excess produce that has been grown or produced on the farm, offer a place for refreshments and children to play in the open air whilst at the same time employing local people to make all this happen.
Our aim is that others will be inspired by what we do, take away ideas, and use them or adapt them for their own needs. Imagine if we had a community farm in every village or town - what a difference that would make!
