Farm Friends is an employment training scheme based at Greenmeadow Community Farm which offers trainees the chance to work directly with animals on a working farm. Trainees learn about animal husbandry, ground maintenance, farm management, health and safety, customer services and team working.
Farm Friends concentrates on developing skills to help trainees make personal progress with or without continued support. The programme is designed to build trainees’ confidence and social skills through interaction with the public.
Who is it for?
Farm Friends will appeal to people with assessed eligible needs.
