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 courses, workshops and placements and farm experiences to the youth and adults in general.
The Farm offers a number of opportunities for 11 to 18 year olds including a weekly youth club, holiday and summer camps, and Duke of Edinburgh opportunities. We offer alternative curriculum and work experience placements including practical sessions in animal care, conservation and bushcraft.
We run a range of curriculum linked outdoor education sessions for primary aged children including Forest school sessions with a level 3 trained leader. If you can't make it to us, we can come to you with an incubator, a chicken or advice about how to maximise your outdoor learning experience.
We have a range of programmes for adults from weekly nature and craft sessions, gardening and growing opportunities, community action days to therapeutic cooking sessions for people experiencing mental distress. We also host team challenge days for local businesses and groups.
We provide unique training placements in horticulture and animal care for adults with learning difficulties or mental health concerns. 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 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.
