As a Community Farm we welcome active participation. We want you to be involved in food production and throughly enjoy being on the farm. There are lots of skills to master and new faces to meet. There is no minimum level of commitment required, whatever you feel willing and able to do.
- Saturday - informal regular drop-in work groups
- Evenings - mid-week evening activities (summer only)
- Public events - planting, harvesting, rural crafts
- Scouts - supervised evening activity sessions
- Students - TCV Diploma, training workshops, outdoor classroom
- Livestock - regular rota, 30 mins, once a week
- Management Committee - fortnightly meetings
Volunteering on the farm is a great opportunity to enjoy outdoor life with plenty of space. We are able to provide guidance, tools and materials for practical activities. These are almost always weather dependent, so remember to bring appropriate clothes for outdoor farm work (e.g. boots, gloves).
Flexible and Practical
Allotments and gardens can be very unforgiving of holidays or the inevitable family or work emergencies. By growing as a community there is more resilience and you are supported by others. We try to have a range of flexible activities to suit different skills and abilities. As well as support from people we also have the equipment and facilities to make things easier.
Please Contact Us to let us know you're coming and ask questions. The formality of the arrangements will depend on the circumstances (as a working farm we have to be responsible and safety conscious).
