Care and the community

Tim Young: I spent yesterday on Top Barn farm near Worcester, attending a fantastic day about care farming. Care farming is a relatively new term for a practice that has been around for a while – using the farm environment as a therapeutic setting for people with a variety of educational, behavioural or mental health needs. By providing regular, structured activities on the farm that allow people the opportunity to participate in meaningful work in a natural environment, the idea is that the land can be used for therapy and training and build the confidence of those taking part.
