Each week we will be open from Wednesdays 10am – 4pm. You can either pop in for a visit, or you can come along to volunteer.
Each week on Wednesdays at 10am we give a farm tour to new volunteers, and then have a list of varied tasks to get through from planting, to preparing beds, to building, or just prep of the farm. We try to vary these tasks so it isn’t repetitive and that you learn something and enjoy every visit.
Normally we provide lunch for our volunteers, of produce from around the farm. This community lunch is really important to us. However with the current Covid-19 restrictions in place we are asking that volunteers bring their own lunch and drinks for now.
We will look to put together a big community lunch when the restrictions are eased.
We believe there has been a disconnect over the last decade where people have seen food as a task and a convenience and this has seen farms move away from being a central hub within the community. We want to revitalise that, and bring them back to being a welcoming place, where you can get back to nature, get fresh air, great food and get your hands dirty… whilst also learning how you can apply this to your own garden, or simply learn where food comes from again.
We’re looking for change makers, local food lovers, and people who can see the benefit in small scale farming and the benefit of knowing where food comes from and a farm being a part of the community again.
We hope to see you on the farm.
