Description & History
Our mission is to:
- Increase local food supply, grown sustainably;
- Create inclusive, shared spaces for the community to cultivate skills;
- Be community-led and not-for-profit;
- Achieve economic stability, supporting land-based employment.
The day starts with a farm tour, giving you an overview of our project and the work we do. Then it’s down to action. Activities vary depending on the season, weather and priorities. They are designed to be enjoyable, educational and inspiring, centred around horticulture and healthy eating. All activities are facilitated by an experienced leader.
Most groups help out with our food production. There is also site maintenance and improvement activities that helps make our farm a warmer, more welcoming space to the public. Examples of growing activities include sowing seeds, clearing beds, mulching vegetables, building polytunnels and composting.
