The Community Farm

Description

We provide learning experiences to enhance the public's understanding of farming and demonstrate how food can be produced in a sustainable way. These include:

  • Adult learning workshops ­- in three broad areas: horticulture, eco-building, food and cookery;
  • Children’s activities – including Forest School, vegetable growing and theatre workshops;
  • School visits – primary and secondary;
  • Employee volunteering/team building.

Why learn with us?

  • The Farm is a real-life example of community-owned organic agriculture;
  • Specialists in particular areas of expertise lead our workshops and visits, be they our own staff or carefully-selected tutors;
  • Many of our workshops and activities are ‘hands-on’, so you can learn by doing;
  • Learning takes place in the setting of a working farm, so it is easier to see how what you learn might be applied in the real world;
  • We are located in beautiful surroundings overlooking Chew Lake;
  • We have a purpose-built yurt for the indoor elements of our workshops and visits; there are also toilets, hand-wash, and tea and coffee-making facilities;
  • The farm provides an opportunity for you to socialise with other members of your community.
