Young people aged 12-17 can get involved with the running of the farm through our ‘Young volunteers’ programme.
Young Volunteers provides the opportunity to learn about animal care; food growing; environmental education; rural arts; enterprise; charities; volunteering and more.
The young volunteers sessions run every Sunday from 1-4pm. This information sheet gives a summary of the kind of activities and projects that take place. Before attending, young volunteers must complete this registration form. Section B must be filled out by the young person’s parent/carer.
Once the application form has been filled out, young volunteers need to attend an induction the first time they come along. Inductions take place at 12.30 pm every Sunday.
The sessions are led by experienced youth workers and adult volunteers.
The Farm is not currently resourced to offer other types of work experience placements to under 18’s, but if you are interested in career a path in the environmental sector please drop by, and one of our staff will be pleased to offer advice.
