Introduction to Greave House Farm Trust
Greave House Farm Trust is a care farm which is a small holding providing therapeutic meaningful work activities for vulnerable people with learning disabilities and / or mental health problems. The “Day Workers” will be growing fruit and vegetables, looking after chickens and raising animals. This will be a welcoming place “where everyone can grow.”
The farm aims to provide a warm welcome, a sense of community and belonging, and to nurture a sense of well-being and self esteem. Research has shown that by enjoying activities such as growing food, looking after animals and learning creative crafts we begin to feel good about ourselves and those around us.
Our activities are informed by permaculture design principles and the exciting challenge of living a simple, low impact lifestyle. Simply put, permaculture is about Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share
