On the farm

Our young people can access  a community farm near Wimborne. They offer therapeutic farming which includes animal husbandry, horticulture and wood work in a nurturing environment.

Our young people can attend on a voluntary basis, some go once a week and others have attended more often. Our young people get to experience gardening, working with a dedicated team to grow veg and fruit all year round. There is a large outdoor veggie patch for potatoes, squash, onions and the odd flower.

The young people also get to experience animal husbandry. Daily tasks include feeding, cleaning out, health checks and lots of cuddles and a chance to spend time with various animals close up. Animals sense our moods and our emotions and give unconditional love where it is most needed.
