St Werburghs City Farm provides a safe, accessible and well equipped environment in which people can learn new skills and grow in confidence and independence. Our youth project offers unique opportunities for young people to experience practical placements working with animals, taking part in Forest school days or learning about nature at Boiling Wells nature reserve.
We offer placements and one off farm experiences to suit small groups or individuals. These include our Work2Learn "Livestock care and farming, Bushcraft and Environmental skills" and “Enterprise courses" as well as tailor made courses and placements.
We offer fun packed educational experiences to complement educational projects or suit your specific needs.
Visits can include a tour of the farm, making pizzas in our wood fired oven, natural crafts, bush crafts and other outdoor learning experiences. You can book a one off visit or weekly sessions for a period of six weeks or give us a call to discuss your bespoke requirements.
After school activities
The weekly youth club meets at the Farm every Wednesday from 4.00pm to 6.00pm. We welcome young people aged 11-19 years old and each session only costs £5.00. Each week the crew feed the animals and put them to bed and then choose what they want to do from cooking, firelighting, arts and crafts and much more. We have some who use this experience towards the volunteer section of Duke of Edinburgh awards.
Meet new people, and enjoy the surroundings that make this one of the most unique youth clubs in the country!
We are CURRENTLY FULL for work experience placements in the summer term 2018.
National Citizen Service
We were really lucky that we were chosen to deliver the government funded National Citizen Service programme.We took a group of thirty young people to Morpha Bay Adventure Centre, then 3 jam packed days at the farm, followed by a 7 week youth led social action project, exhausting but brilliant.
