The project has ten main areas allowing our young people to learn skills and network. It also allow volunteers and supporters to get involved by helping, donating or foraging in so many ways. We are keen to reuse / recycle and support from the local community has been great. We have had fencing, pallets, chicken house, paint and animal donated.

Growing crops is important to help with animals feed and of course our young students who not only grow for the animals but for themselves. We are working on an areas to explain and show the crops that are grown on a farm.
Our building programme is ongoing, building, painting, repairing.
We are always pleases to receive old building materials we can re use, we are looking for roofing sheets, blocks and wood.
We have 70acres to maintain and develop with 2 miles of hedges which need work on.
The areas of work are Hedges, ditches, harvest, orchard, woodland, fencing, clearing ponds.
Not everyone is able to volunteer at the farm so we have volunteers who lookout and do foraging for materials that can be recycled at the farm and given a new lease of life.
Our students enjoy the challenge of making use of the materials that can be given a second life.
We are all on the out look for building materials, feed. plants
Raising funds for the animals, students and project is important and great fun. We make funds by selling photos, produce to local shops, auctions and events at local venues and markets.
