Katie here founder of Little Lambs and co owner of Heath Farm Suffolk and farm school.
I am trying to raise funds for our educational side and farm sanctuary where these animals are used in our "Little Lambs" sessions, animal therapy.
We are passionate about education at HF and would love to be able to offer more. But in the current climate and as a farm receive NO subsidies or grant, we have built the farm from nothing, through grit, determination and many jobs.
We get asked so much to do more and we would love to offer sessions to children/adults. Our very kind Land lord as given permission for an outdoor teaching area to be created. Somewhere safe, that can be used rain or shine to be able to offer sessions all year round.
We need to secure the longevity of our farm school and future educational programmes and visits to the farm. This also ensure the future of the sanctuary we have.
To build a purpose built outside teaching area which we can use all year round but is infitting with our natural environment.
To build a permanent polytunnel where we can grow food all year round and have an enclosed teaching area, perfect for young and old.
Our current polytunnel and tempary gazebo have succumbed to the weather and now prohibits us from being able to teach all year round.
This would also enable us to do more animal therapy, have schools and the disadvantage to be able to experience where food comes from in a natural environment.
Covid-19 has hit everyone so badly and in this world of climate change we need to support natural and carbon neutral, and know where are food comes from.
There is no other experience or program like ours around.
Katie teachs in Scandinavian style, but to see the young and old come out of their shell and blossom is very special.
