Continuing the success of our once a year Outdoor Family camping, then twice in Covid-hit 2020, this year we are extending that to 3 separate visits to Green Farm. In order to make this work without having an impact on our natural woodlands we have completed a couple of projects to improve the facilities. These are:
NEW INFRASTRUCTURE AT GREEN FARM
The building of three Eco Loo’s in Fairyland - helped by a grant from the Nineveh Charitable Trust
The extension of the community garden mini loo and shower block facilities, where we have added a "changing places" specification disabled shower and loo - part-funded by a grant from Steenbergen Stichting
NEXT INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS
We have the following projects for which we are raising funds:
Fitting out the disabled shower and loo with an adult-sized changing table & a hoist (£4,000)
A large glasshouse for the Community Garden (£12,000)
OUTDOOR FAMILY CAMPING FOOD, TRANSPORT, STAFF
A variety of things are needed to make the camping work at Green Farm such as:
Money for food during the days at Green Farm
Mini buses hire
Social work staff
Each camping weeks requires approx £5,000 to be run successfully, jointly raised by us and Outdoor People
"After a spell volunteering in the garden I feel revitalised from spending time in the fresh air, I make a connection with people, both Catherine and other volunteers/apprentices, not to mention learning lots about gardening, farm life and wildlife"
Our volunteers mean the world to us and we know they gain as much from the experience as they give. We offer a range of volunteering opportunities in our Community Garden and at our Family Camps so contact us for more information.
There are lots of ways to get your company involved, from donations to volunteering, charity of the year or a partnership.
Your team could take a day out of the office and have fun working on a project in the Community Garden. Green Farm can provide meeting facilities and accommodation for team meetings while you are here helping.
You might be able to help with fundraising via Payroll Giving, events or by donating gifts in kind.
Get in touch to tell us how you would like to help.
