We deliver educational activities for primary school children (aged 4 to 11 years old) and we support adults with learning disabilities in accredited and therapeutic training opportunities.
We also offer apprenticeships, courses, workshops and placements and farm experiences to the youth (11 - 18 years) and adults in general (18 years plus).
We offer curriculum linked Outdoor Education sessions and Forest School sessions (level 3 trained leader) for primary aged children, as well as Bespoke Programmes and Alternative Curriculum and Work Experience Placements for youth of all ages including animal care, gardening, cooking, conservation and bushcraft.
If you can't make it to us, we can also come to you with an incubator, a chicken or a consultancy to help you maximise your organisation's outdoor learning experience, or even deliver sessions at your own space.
The Farm offers a number of opportunities for 11 to 18 year olds including a weekly Youth Club, Holiday and Summer Camps, Tuesday Cafe, Work 2 Learn with Animals Placements, and even Duke of Edinburgh volunteering.
- weekly nature, landscape, gardening and craft Drop-in Sessions at Boiling Wells

- Wellbeing + Practical Skills' Courses for 18 - 25 year olds
- Greenspace Wellbeing Sessions for Refugees and Asylum Seekers

We provide unique training placements and therapeutic activities in horticulture, gardening and animal care for adults (18+) with learning difficulties or mental health disabilities. Our trainees manage the community garden, harvesting vegetables to sell to the cafe and ensure that our animals and farm site are well catered for.
The Propagation Place Apprenticeship, in association with Bridgewater and Taunton College, is a fantastic opportunity for people living in central Bristol to explore a career in horticulture, sustainable farming and land-management, whilst gaining transferable skills and experience through working in a thriving community business in a charitable setting.
The farm loves a good celebration — especially when it gets us outdoors. Come and join us for one of our seasonal events at Boiling Wells or make a date and head to the Farm Summer Fair. As well as having a great time, you'll be helping us to raise vital funds that support our activities.
