Farms for City Children – Farm & Nature Residential – Devon – July 2024

Our Gold Award Residential Programme runs during weeks when we do not have a group in residence, during the summer holidays. Farming never stops though – our sites continue to work during these periods and there are always animals to feed, stables to muck out, harvesting to be done in our large productive gardens, produce to process and maintenance tasks around the farm.

We use these weeks to do some of the bigger jobs we can’t always manage when we have primary aged children on site. Last year, (amongst other tasks) the groups worked hard to put up a large bee shed and create a teaching area for the visiting children to return to in September. The residential is full board – we will provide all meals some of which are harvested, then prepared and served by the participants as part of your activities with us.

At our wonderful heritage farm you will experience the benefits of collaboration, enjoy plenty of physical activity, good food, and fresh air, and discover a magical rural environment. Through your volunteer work you will help us to maintain our livestock and gardens and keep the site in good shape for our beneficiaries. 17yrs Plus
