Our placements work in various areas of the farm, including livestock, horticulture, catering and cooking, arts and crafts, photography and creative arts. Volunteers are required to work directly with trainees to assist in promoting skills development, lift their spirits and encourage independence by ensuring the process is enriching. Specific tasks will depend on the needs of the work area and abilities of the person with disability. Volunteers are allocated no more than two trainees to work with throughout the session.

the mantra we live by

This is a place for growing.

Plants, fruit and veg, animals, but most of all, people.

We cultivate joy here. And learning.

We nurture self-confidence and a sense of belonging.

You’ll feel it as soon as you walk through our door.

Lives are being enriched. Needs are being nourished.

It couldn’t happen without our volunteers. Or your donations.

We’re a charity. Run for people, not for profits.

A community-spirited place where everyone is welcome. And valued.

This is a happy place.

A wholesome place. A human place.
