Community Care Farming
Our care farming services focus on human health and wellbeing, notably the many benefits – physical, mental, social and spiritual – that come from working with animals, plants, soil and other people in community.
In idyllic and accessible surroundings, we offer a range of activities with small supervised groups of up to 3 – 4 individuals.
Funded by various parts of the Irish Church, our groundbreaking CARE (Care farming for Asylum Seekers, Refugees and the Environment) project is the first of its kind to work with this service user group in Northern Ireland. In 2021, the project enters the third year of its pilot phase with guests from 6 nationalities having taken part.
Between January and March 2020, we carried out a care farming pilot with adults with learning difficulties referred to Jubilee Farm by the Northern Health and Social Care Trust. We hope that this important work will restart in 2021.
A Care Farming session of up to 5 hours costs £180
