Get Involved

 

Community Farmer Days

Community Farmer Days are a brilliant day out for all the family. Throughout the growing season, we welcome everyone in our community to come along and try out being a farmer for a day!

No experience is necessary, as long as you’re happy getting your hands dirty. Children are also welcome to get involved. Check out the event listings below to find out what you might get up to on the day.

Please note, we run a lift-share scheme if transport is a problem.

Your role as a volunteer is an hugely important part of the overall ethos and work we do. We greatly value your input, both physical and in the form of any ideas or feedback you may have. The Farm operates a volunteering programme that is open to all, promoting community involvement and skills development within a sociable and supportive environment. If you have specific support needs, please talk to the Volunteer Coordinator, who will endeavour to provide you with what you need. Please refer to our equal opportunities policy for more information on this.
