 New stretch target

Extra funds will improve the farm site more widely enabling better lighting and access to this space for everyone.

We’ve been pledged an incredible £34,000 to turn a forgotten part of the farm into a magical, secluded area to host educational groups, parties, events and campfire sessions. 

The catch? We need to raise 10% of that figure to unlock that money! 

The land itself is a neglected and disused corner of the city farm, which needs a bit of work to reach its potential.  It’s a prime area to turn into a covered outside space with access to its own kitchen, fire pit, pond and seasonal fruit and vegetable patches. 

We envision the space to be used as a quiet area for schools, families and groups of vulnerable people, as it's tucked away, it makes it ideal.  Its relative isolation also makes it a great spot for a party or small-scale acoustic music event. Sitting around a camp-fire, with the fairy lights twinkling, listening to tunes or sharing time with friends as part of a small celebration, a handfasting or baby naming ceremony perhaps. 

The money will go towards levelling the ground and building an accessible path. It needs some landscaping and planting, installation of a compost loo and a pond (don't mix them up!) and most of all a wooden covered structure with a kitchen, wood-fired oven and space for a cosy campfire. 

We can do most of the work with our in-house team and volunteers, which make it great value for money and really makes this project part of the farm. We're 90% of the way there,  we just need your support to match the last 10%, which we'll pay to the funder to release their pledge.
